Nick, sorry for taking the thread off-line but I wanted to check with
Richard if he was OK with the updated patch.

BTW, there is a related GCC patch
( that I don't
think has any ABI implications.  Can you please take a look at it.

Richard, how far do you think the EABI should go in specifying the PLT
(for Thumb, ARM and interwork).  I think the rule of thumb :) is that
an application/shared library built by one tool chain should be able
to work (link and dynamically link) with another shared library built
by another tool chain.
