Does that impact all Linux platforms or just Linux/mips? If it is a
netbsd bug, why can't we ask them to fix their code? As the last
resort, they can always modify their private linker scripts if they
don't want to fix their code. They have been doing that for a long
time anyway. I don't think everyone who use the GNU binutils should
suffer just because netbsd is broken.
