I recall that there were problems with the copyright assignments for
the patchs for the interrupt attribute and some features related to
the coldfire processor and that therefore these never made back into
the mainline release.

I recall that Mark Barada (sorry if I have the name wrong) was in the 
process of trying to ensure that all or some of the Coldfire specific
patches were going to get ported to V3 of gcc.

Best regards
