Re: [PATCH] win64 support for libffi (2/2)

Nominally, the libffi list gets the patches (I've cc'd there) and Anthony Green promises to migrate stuff back and forth between sourceware and gcc, but I've not heard a peep from Mr. Green.

I will remove gcc-patches from future To: lists, and send to java- patches instead.

Thank you for this!!!

Bad news guys, there's a problem: GCC's in-tree libffi is way behind
sourceware CVS HEAD, like at least an entire ABI version IIUC. The patch
doesn't come even close to applying cleanly to GCC, I'm afraid.

It either needs backporting, or a whole new version of libffi needs
importing and a whole lot of targets tested. You'd probably better discuss
this with the java list, I think they're the owners of libffi in GCC.
