I do not understand this -- We're using GCC 4.2.1 @r127959, but you
are bringing in patches that are against 4.1.

What version of GCC were the changes back ported from if not 4.2.0 or

BTW, these also should have been imported into ^/vendor/gcc/ and then
merged into ^/head/contrib/gcc as there are commercial users of FreeBSD
that have to modify their compiler to be able to consume FreeBSD source
code.  And provenance and licensing matters to these folks.
