There's another ABI change in 4.1 (fix for passing of complex floats),
so this additional change may not present much of a problem.  As a result,
I don't think Debian is using 4.1 to any great extent yet.  I don't have
a good assessment of how many others might be using GCJ on hppa and how
much these users would benefit.

The TLS support for linux contains a new locking technique and probably
hashing will be usable when this is available.
