This isn't a problem: I'm the author of those changes in GCC,
and my FSF copyright assignment papers grant me full ownership
of my contributions.

I hereby re-license my code to the newlib project with the same
license of libgloss/m68k/crt0.S.

Sure. I'll resubmit the patch moving the definitions to asm.h.
