I have no objections to the patch, but I think it also best to wait for Denis to approve as well.
Based on your analysis of the test case failure you mentioned above, do you think we need to have some other new test cases for the AVR fixed-point support?
BTW, I appreciate all the great work that you've done on this! :-)
