if you filter out generated files, it gets much smaller.
$ du -b 0001-FT32-Support.patch 
370422  0001-FT32-Support.patch
$ filterdiff -x '*/aclocal.m4' -x '*/configure' 0001-FT32-Support.patch | wc -c
that nukes 80% of the content which we aren't going to review anyways.

you can further split it up into libgloss & newlib patches.
seems that gets you to ~45k/30k files.  still large, but i
think should get you onto the list for review.

quick note: config.sub changes belong in the gnuconfig project:
once you're committed there, pushing the change into the newlib
repo is granted w/out checking -- we copy files unmodified.

a quick scan shows that you copied a lot of files from the moxie
port, but then didn't actually update any of the contents.  so
there's a lot of invalid references in there to "moxie" still.
please trim all the files you don't actually use instead of
blind duplication.
