Well, that was useful.  Thanks Richard!

Needed before the changeover:
* (gcc) packed enums (should be trivial to implement in the compiler, but
  I've heard rumours it might break openssh)

Things to do soon (but can be after the main changeover):
* (kernel) enable alignment traps for ELF executables on machines that can
  do this. [thorpej]
* (gdb) support VFP-format doubles. [bjh21]
* (gdb) merge support into FSF sources. [bjh21]
* Ensure that all platforms can boot ELF kernels (or have alternative
  arrangements). [reinoud, chris, matt]

Richard:  Can you clarify what's meant by "packed enums"?  Is it what GCC
gives you if you define DEFAULT_SHORT_ENUMS?
