Re: [3.4 patch?] -save-temps still produces different .s and .o

Thank you very much.  This indeed brings us back to the same status we
had when -fworking-directory was introduced, which is good.

Unfortunately, even after your patch, we still emit an initial .file
directive naming the .i file when compiling with -save-temps, which is
bad.  The assembler generates a different object file because of this,
which means bootstrap still fails.  Just to be clear: it's not a
regression you have introduced, we already had this problem when
-fworking-directory was introduced, and I didn't have a chance to try
to fix it.  I'll look a bit more into how to overcome this problem.

Will do.  I've just tried a bootstrap, after applying the patch to
mainline (needed some patch conflict resolution), and found out it
wouldn't bootstrap because this hunk:

attempts to modify a read-only data structure, which triggers a
warning.  That plus -Werror means bootstrap fails.

I commented this out just to make sure bootstrap completed otherwise,
and it did.  Yay!  Now on to the 3.4 branch.
