I note that this repository includes the include/ directory, in its larger 
binutils-gdb form rather than the smaller GCC form.

How much of this is actually relevant for newlib?  Mostly it relates to 
libiberty and object file formats, for use of code that's not included in 
this repository (which does not include libiberty).  If little or none of 
this code is actually used in newlib, it might make sense to remove the 
unused files so it's clear they do not need merging from the other 

(Apart from include/, various shared toplevel files and directories are 
out of sync between the three repositories - GCC, binutils-gdb, 
newlib-cygwin - and could do with someone identifying unmerged changes and 
applying them to the repositories missing them.)
