Indeed I noticed that looking at tarballs folder :)

Sure that's good but what I meant we're still seeing quite some
build that use old "prebult" ARC tools and some of them fail like
and others.

Some of those failures are known to be fixed by new toolchain thus
asking you to update it.

Note I'm not saying that toolchain bump will immediately fix all
ARC failures. Quite in reverse we may start seeing more breakages due to move
from GCC 7.3.1 to 8.2.1 but that's why we mess with all that here I guess :)
