What's the process then, that I get my Cilk Plus (libcilkrts) portability
patches committed to GCC?  I was advisd this must be routed through Intel
(Barry M Tannenbaum CCed), which I have done months ago: I submitted the
patches to Intel, and -- as I understood it -- Barry and I seemed to
agree about them (at least I don't remember any requests for changes to
be made on my side), but I have not seen a merge from Intel to update
GCC's libcilkrts.  Should I now commit to GCC the pending patches,
and following?
