I don't know what the past hang-ups were, but I guess that hardly matters. I'll ping the author of the existing gdb patches and try to reinitiate the submission process. Additionally, we still need to figure out what is wrong with -gc and fix it. In the past, I've spent some quality time on #gdb discussing how to fix that. I'm just not knowlegable on the topic. Having the compiler source could help... Do you have any pointers for where to look for writing of debug info?
