Thanks. I've committed this now albeit with a follow up commit owing to not
stating the bug number in the log.

I verified hard/soft defaults in GCC combined with binutils 2.24/2.25
successfully build a linux toolchain and the expected options appear to the
assembler. Obviously you can still face problems by updating Binutils
without rebuilding GCC but there is nothing I can (sensibly) do about that.

Aaro: Sorry for the long delay, I wasn't sure on procedure as you can see.

Any strong opinions on whether the combination of GCC 4.8 and binutils
2.25+ is significantly important? I can do the other backport if anyone
thinks it beneficial.
