Yes, gcc 4.9.0 doesn't need it.
IMHO it should have been in 4.8.3 since the bug was resolved in April 4
and gcc was released on May 22, but i don't know their release policies
so who knows.
Regarding CT-NG that's up to Yann, and yes an exception is in order,
though if you look at other failures it does affect internal toolchains
as well so the fix alone will make errors go down albeit not all of them.
