 Just as a reminder, can we please coordinate so that GDB 7.7 is released 
before binutils 2.24?

 On the MIPS target we've switched PLT formats produced by LD for MIPS16 
and microMIPS binaries and for correct frame unwinding GDB has to 
understand them.  Otherwise it'll fail in odd ways, e.g. when stepping 
over a function called via PLT.  Of course all code required is there in 
our shared repository, it's just a matter of making the releases in the 
right order so that ordinary developers have a version of GDB to upgrade 
to available if needed.
