Hi,

originally posted in the same form as:
	[patch 15/14] GDB/GCC compile function pointers [Re: [PATCH v4 00/14] let gdb reuse gcc's C compiler]
	https://sourceware.org/ml/gdb-patches/2014-12/msg00148.html
	Message-ID: <20141205182925.GA25151@host2.jankratochvil.net>

TBH while I always comment reasons for each of the compilation options in
reality I tried them all and chose that combination that needs the most simple
compile/compile-object-load.c (ld.so emulation) implementation.

So this is a formal request for review/approval as the main patchset is now
checked in.


Thanks,
Jan

Joel:
OK for 7.9?  It is definitely not regression-safe but I do not think it matter
for the new 'compile' feature, it was broken anyway etc.
