Sorry Richard but seems but email client was formatting it incorrectly,

Seems some of these things can either be closed or discussed here:

Add support to a multithread environment to Garbage Collector:This may 
not matter as memory is in bulk at the beginning of passes.
I've benchmarkedit and its less than 5% on the GCC test farm machines 
with make -j64.Parallelize RTL part. This will improve our
current results, as indicated in Results chapter:struct function or 
function.c if I recall is using the most as one file at around 20-30%
forsure in building gcc with make -j64.

Make this GCC compile itself:

It does now and I just tested it but I assuming he means with threads on 
and I'm not sure how to enable them in the core  Makefile
for gcc or if just exporting CC/CXX is earlier with it turned on.I've 
also looked into the Linux Kernel work queues as those can scale
much better than just launching in async as we are doing currently. On 
the testing side seems the Yocto Project is working on testing
upstream heads of projects like gcc.

I've asked them to bring it up at the usual IOT/Embedded Linux 
Conference meeting. This will also us to have access to not only the
gcc testsuite but access to build lots of real world software packages 
in a pretty automated
way as that was one concern that Giuliano brought up at the Cauldron 
this year.

Also if someone opens a more detailed ToDo with Bugs or something I 
would be able to help out more
or just CC on the issues or work that is ongoing as frankly seems I'm 
not been keeping good track,
