[Patch] MIPS:Add a note about recommended binutils version to install.texi
Mon Mar 5 06:11:00 GMT 2007
Unfortunately there is no released version of GNU binutils that works
well with GCC 4.2/4.3. But since it looks as though a 4.2 release is
imminent, I think it is a good idea to recommend a binutils CVS snapshot
made after Nov. 9, 2006.
The assembler bug that was fixed effects jump tables emitted into comdat
sections. This is done by the C++ compiler for certain switch
statements. I don't know if 4.0/4.1 are affected by this problem as I
never do testing with those versions. If they are, we might want to put
this on those branches as well.
OK to commit to 4.2 and trunk?
