Great, thanks!

I just have few and very minor comments; please consider them and then
commit an updated patch.

Index: gcc-3.4/changes.html

I'd omit "previously" in this case; and I believe there are one or two
instances later on as well.

+	  <li>A small union is passed or returned in a register; and</li>

And I do think this really ought to be an entry in the news section of
our main page.  Would you mind suggesting some wording for me to base
that entry on?
