Good, but mind telling us what these patches are supposed to be doing and
why precisely you need them?

I seem to recognize some of the patches from a long time ago, but I could
be mistaken; the trouble with old patches not integrated in an evolving 
project is that after a while you don't know if the problem was fixed in 
a different way.

Unless you have a good reason to use these patches, I strongly recommend
leaving all of these out; if there is a good reason, I would much rather
see these sent to binutils maintainer to make sure these are integrated.

There is a world of a difference between b17 binutils and b20.1 binutils.
