Not quite sure I follow you... the issue with binutils seems likely
to be in binutils or in the way buildroot configures and builds
binutils, or not ??

The gcc bugs you reference seem to be unrelated...

Anyway, does the rest of the patch look OK ?? (There should be
nothing too controversial in there, I just updated an existing
buildroot patch for gcc so that it applies to the latest gcc 4.2
