It isn't clear to me why we'd be spending days discussing this when
presumably the patches apply without too much effort. Some of the
look worthwhile to me. If we're talking about only gcc 4.7 fixes then
it looks like we're only talking about five patches, none of them are to
source files, and none of them are very big.
