FWIW running regression testing with reasonably recent hardware across
(most of) our target base takes machine processing in the order of maybe 1
hour in terms of elapsed time and does not require any additional tools
beyond a native toolchain, so I think it is worth making it a regular
habit when making any changes to binutils outside strictly target-specific
Then if there are obscure target-specific issues you cannot figure out
what to do about, you can ask for assistance at the mailing list before a
change is committed that breaks things. Not breaking things is important
for bisecting other problems.
Alan, thanks for stepping in and taking care of this time; my time is
limited these days for any MIPS maintenance (and I had a network outage
from yesterday till shortly before now too).
