People are much more likely to examine, study in depth, and possibly
approve your patches if you:

* use proper ChangeLog format (see pointers on
  http://gcc.gnu.org/contribute.html);

* indicate how you've tested your changes, e.g., what targets, what
  tests you've run, etc.;

* include pointers to previous versions you've posted, and include
  text that summarizes the changes that you've made (both overall, and
  relative to previous versions); and

* don't include snippy comments intended to provoke a response (since
  one very easy response to provocation involves the 'd' key 8-).
