Your example-usage is wrong and the patch you sent is also wrong.

I reviewed it.

The patch's size does not determine its correctness; and in this
particular case, it doesn't correct anything wrong in the library.

I'm not wasting your time.  You're wasting our time.

I'm not paid "to sort exactly these issues out".  GCC is a volunter
project.  I wasn't paid for having written the valarray component.
I'm not paid for maintaining the valarray component.

You didn't demonstrate any bug in the valarray component.  Instead, you
sent various messages insulting people.  I can't qualify that as "a
courtesy" in any meaningful way.
