Don't know what this means.

I didn't write the original of this patch, I made a minor change and 
wrote the test cases. The main body of the work was done by Jeff Law  
<law@redhat.com>. I'll have a look at gfc_copy_attr to see if better 
code can be used.

I have inherited the responsibility of getting this patch upstreamed, 
any help in achieving this will be appreciated.
