Re: Importing gnulib into the gcc tree

Hi Ayush,

Some suggestions:

* When resubmitting a patch, also add again the Changelog.
* Use '.diff' or '.patch' as an extension, so that mail readers can
open the file as text.
* Mention that you have a copyright assignment in place already (I'm
assuming you have one already, no?).
* Mention how you regression tested your changes (on which targets?)
* In the case of these changes, and as further testing, it would be
good if you tried locally to remove obstack.[ch] from libiberty to
make sure nothing in GCC is using it. I don't think we can actually
remove it because it may be used by other projects using libiberty,
however, as your first submission showed, it is not always evident
that everything in GCC is using the gnulib version.
