  Thanks.  Updated, bubblestrapped and retested, and applied at r147641.

  Ivan, re: your query about synching gcc and bdwgc a bit better, it's not
something I can offer help with (I have a list as long as my arm of things
that plain don't work to fix at the moment), but I noted that there's been
some people looking into this in the fairly-recent past:

http://gcc.gnu.org/wiki/GCTuningApplication
http://gcc.gnu.org/wiki/Garbage_collection_tuning
http://gcc.gnu.org/wiki/BoehmGCForGCC
http://gcc.gnu.org/svn.html#devbranches - see boehms-gc, gc-improv.

  Laurynas Biveinis probably knows more about GC in GCC than anyone else,
although I don't know how busy he might or might not be, but maybe you can get
some co-ordination going between yourselves and the folks who've worked on
those branches.

    cheers,
      DaveK
