Secondly, and obviously I can't repeat this enough, all patch
contributions should report the target triples that they were
bootstrapped and regression tested on, and include the results of
This is only an RFC for a patch I prepared in ten minutes, it's as far
as possible from requesting approval. First of all, removing them may
in turn make other functions unreachableThe patch as is bootstrapped.
Second, my script provides a quick start and all the functions suggested
by my script should be hand-checked before removing them: I did this
work on a tree without Ada to save checkout time, of course I would do
the tests on a full tree, and on tree-ssa-pre-merge as well, before
suggesting a serious patch. All I wanted was comments, and Andrew, Jan
and you provided them indeed.
Being harsh is your maintainer's duty but, believe it or not (apart
from, I admit, omitting the fact that I've bootstrapped/regtested the
patch i686-pc-linux-gnu, which I *always* do), I do follow the rules in
contribute.html. I'm sorry for the times I broke other platforms than
this one, but I feel I've always fixed things properly. Unluckily I
have no SPARC, IA64, Alpha or even x86-64 machines to test my changes
on; I hope that I am still helping GCC in some way.
I did make a major mistake with the LTGT_EXPR patch; I have a better fix
than what is currently on HEAD, and I'm trying to see why my machine
does not run the Java tests, before submitting it.
