Yip, this patch will be in this weeks release.  The fix was done in
the upstream release branch and will come down as part of our monthly
merge-from-trunk.

The merge request for this is at:
 https://code.launchpad.net/~ams-codesourcery/gcc-linaro/merge-from-fsf-20110908-4.6/+merge/74630

The auto builder built it fine on i686, x86_64, A9, and ARMv5.  The
testsuite changes still need to be investigated.

Bernhard has done the right thing and pulled the upstream patch to
meet their immediate need.
