I just wanted to add a few thoughts.

  There's this machine running, doing test compiles for
Binutils/GAS/GDB as well as GCC, Linux kernel, SIMH simulator and
NetBSD (cross-compiled from Linux and from a NetBSD host running in
KVM.) I'm usually building with gcc-snapshot (except Linux kernel,
which cross-compiles from my last matching GCC build for that target,
so it's nearly master.)

  When I detect issues like this (either individual targets or global
breakages like this non-null attribution issue), shall I report them
to the GDB list? Open a ticket? Most of the time, I think I'd be able
to pin-point a causing commit.

PS: I've seen that there was a CI build thread these days, maybe I'd
also comment on that?
