 After numerous hiccups and distractions I am about to get back to this 

 For the record -- I have come across an inconsistency in FCR handling, 
coming from a regression introduced with XML description support for the 
MIPS target, affecting this patch series.  I am about to commit a fix, 
after the final testing I'm still working on; I'd like to see it there in 
7.12 so that we have a fixed proper release before MSA goes in.  Code in 
the patch set will then have to be adjusted accordingly.

 Parts of some patches apply to binutils rather than GDB and need to be 
split, so I'll go through the series as they are so that there is no need 
to proliferate reposts unnecessarily.

 There has been an issue with this submission indeed in that it arrived as 
two separate threads, but the remaining patches do have made it there:

 I don't think so, not at this stage.  We need to sort out the general 
structure of the patch set first.  Please feel free, or indeed anyone 
else, to chime in if you like, of course.
