I have just created a distribution branch: 'linaro/gcc-4_8-branch'.  I have 
committed the attached patch to the wwwdocs CVS repository to document this 
branch (and future Linaro branches).

The branch will track the equivalent FSF release branch (once created) and 
also accept backports of patches accepted for trunk which are of interest to 
the ARM and AArch64 backends.  Anyone from Linaro with write access to the 
GCC Subversion repository can commit and approve patches for this branch.

The branch has been created early as there are some Stage 1 pending patches 
which I want to backport early to this branch.
