Re: [PATCH] Improve PR28796

Of course, my preference is for contributors, including you and I, to
voluntarily hold-off on posting patches that are only suitable for 4.3

perhaps the burden should be on reviewers not to comment on 4.3 patches?

I would ask that contributors work on (and review) GCC 4.2 regression patches. (Today is CodeSourcery's GCC 4.2 hack-a-thon, and I will be trying to review all patches posted, to the extent I am competent, as well as fixing some bugs of my own!) However, if you do happen to have fixed something that should go in GCC 4.3, I think it's OK to post it, and OK to review it. That's still useful work -- just not necessarily the most useful thing to do in terms of helping to move us along.
