Can you confirm you're using a GCC 4.1.1 snapshot with binutils 2.17 ? As
for those I expect to see a perfect patch match.  I don't think (anymore)
our patches can be applied to next versions without updating but still
believe the updating would require minor effort for someone who's a bit
familiar with the code and knows what the patches do and why.
