Hi Nick,

How do you prefer to get the new port :
A separate patch for each Binutils sub-directory (bfd, opcodes, gas etc') 
or a single patch containing the port's info for the whole Binutils 
project ?

No worries, this is the right list.

As has already been mentioned you should try to submit the patch against 
the latest binutils sources from the CVS repository.  You will probably 
find however that these are quite close the the 2.15 sources.
