Fact: No it wasn't fed back to Cygnus. Why: ?. Reason: Whatever...
I usually mail Ian changes i do. This time i fixed a "showstopper", putting
what i was currently doing aside. So mailing this fix was, well, not done...
While we're at it you may have seen that i have done a "fix" to take care
of the lib*.so.x selection that is in "elfmipsarc.c" (IMS) that has not
been sent to Cygnus either.
