Done. fixes
(most of?) the most egregious ones, like fortran fixes with c++ PR
numbers and vice versa. Jakub and I have several whitelist commits
too, but I think they're all less critical (as mentioned previously,
most of them are unimportant differences like rtl-optimization vs
tree-optimization, or debug vs lto, or simply that  the Bugzilla
component has been changed since the commit was done and the commit
was actually right at the time).
