Sorry if I missed something, but what's the involvement the guys at Atmel
have in this project? Do they have some sort of maintenance
responsabilities in this project? Do they sponsor this project in some
way? Are you working for the guys at Atmel?

I'm realy sorry for you (and for the rest of us using other archs), but
the way you treat the buildroot project is not really acceptable.
If you don't have the bandwidth to do things right, maybe the guys at
Atmel can buy you some more bandwidth so you can do dig and make proper
changes that don't break other archs.

But doesn't that mean that the AVR32 tool is broken?
What am I missing here?

And that means that all other archs that _do build_ must be broken?
Sorry, doesn't make much sense to me :(

Not interested to build any AVR32 toolchain myself. I'm quite happy if
the other toolchains do build.

What about the rest of us?

Obviously it is better to ensure that _all_ toolchains build, I'd say.

So, all other toolchains that occasionally build (until you you break
them) must be broken, and that's not your problem?
All you talk about is AVR32.
You seem to only care about AVR32.
You couldn't care less if you break all other archs with your patches?
Is this fare play?
