Hope this is correct address to send to.

Okay.  The patch will appear in both 3.1.1 and subsequent releases.

If you mean my response about whether you need paperwork on file with
the FSF, that isn't affected by the size of individual patch files.
Think "number of lines of code changed," if that makes it clearer.

The way you posted the patch was fine, except for the context diff thing
I mentioned.  If you're sending diffs against the released source, then
all methods will be equally slightly inconvenient :-) but we can cope.

Once you get an anonymous CVS checkout, then you can make you changes
directly, and run

    cvs diff -c3p include/bits/foo src/bar testsuite/blah > changes has good advice about how best to mail
the "changes" file (scroll down to the Submitting Patches part).


If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater
than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace.  We seek
not your counsel, nor your arms.  Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you;
and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.            - Samuel Adams
