Ok, I naturally don't share this narrow viewpoint. It's not a use case
for any of the supported archs, but ok, it's easy to support.

Again, I know this is probably just you being you, but do take care of
your choice of words. To me, this commit message sounds quite
aggressive, as if you're upset that Javier's fix broke your
nonstandard/unsupported/undocumented setup, which is ofcause pretty
silly considering that he clearly spent effort on verifying it with
multiple toolchains and the original commit didn't even work for the
default configuration.

Anyway, I've fixed up your commit so it applied to master, and committed
with a somewhat reworked commit message.

 Mike> btw, why is your quoting style so screwed up ?

It's just standard emacs supercite, like I've used for the last 10yrs or
so. I find it handy in mailing lists when several people participate in
a discussion.

Bye, Peter Korsgaard
