In order to allow the patch to be integrate with GCC, I need the copyright assignment/disclaimer forms, according to <https://gcc.gnu.org/contribute.html>. Our MinGW target maintainer, jon_y, is also interested in the patch. While we have no idea about the process about submitting patches, we need some guidance about:

I'll send you the form, which you need to email to the FSF.

The FSF will send you the paperwork to sign and return to them.

That's explained at https://gcc.gnu.org/contribute.html#patches or you
can look at the thousands of examples sent to the gcc-patches mailing
list, to see what others do.
