Looks good apart from that new command line options need documenting
in doc/invoke.texi.

On a different topic - I very much would like to have a sort-of
"tainted" message on ICEs and errors, like

t.i:6: internal compiler error: in gimplify_expr, at gimplify.c:6912
Please submit a full bug report,
with preprocessed source if appropriate.
See <http://gcc.gnu.org/bugs.html> for instructions.
*** WARNING *** your compiler uses plugins, do not report this
bug but reproduce it without using plugins

(maybe even omit the 'Please submit a full bug report, ...' part if
plugins are used)

Likewise issue this warning before the driver exits after errors
are issued.

Otherwise I fear we will be swamped with plugin-related bugs (I consider
this a show-stopper to be solved somehow before we can release a
GCC with plugin support).

Thanks,
Richard.
