Two remarks

1/ Are we sure that this behavior will be seen in a _released_ gcc ?
(not a rhetorical question, I'm a bit weary of chasing gcc trunk that

2/ I am not well equipped to apply in-lined patch like that (I use
gmail as main mailbox for this dev-list... so it is cut-and-paste with
horror stories about line wrapping and all)
could you use git format-patch to generate patches and attach them
(git format-patch as the added benefit that I don't have to type
--author="Your Name <you at email> -m "a nice commit message that _I_
would have to come up with" but instead cat <your_git_formated_patch>
| git am
