        Patches to
        Changes need to be done in tandem with the official CONFIG
        sources or submitted to the master file maintainer and brought
        in via a merge.  When updating any of these files, please be
        sure to update all of them.
        Please notify the following of any committed patches:

Job done. The `gcc' and `src' repos are currently in sync, but
config.sub is not. This upstream commit is missing:

	commit c32cdd1e576a5114994878bc345affa73e3ead1a
	Author: Mike Frysinger <>
	Date:   Sun Nov 11 09:28:25 2012 +1100
	        * config.sub (arm): Handle armv6/armv7/armv8 targets.
	        * testsuite/ Add test cases.
	    Signed-off-by: Ben Elliston <>

...or are changes to config.{guess,sub} always pre-approved if they
originate from the upstream repo?
