The problem is that it doesn't necessarily have to be gas - it could be
the native assembler. GCC has:
So it's probably better (and a smaller patch) to just do that.
Yep. Also, it would be best if you could test this change also on a
cross-compiler, a Canadian cross, and maybe even a host-x-host (i.e.
host != build, but build == target) configuration. Be sure to use
non-canonical names (i.e. names that config.sub will change). :-)
Personally I would not be against this change even if it breaks some
configurations, as long as it is known *which*.
