If the patch is a trivial fix, it could be applied to our tree first.
But in this case, changes are so large (adding new flags/functions)
that it would cause compatibility problem and it would also make it
harder to import newer binutils release tree in the future.
We had many "significant divergence" in doc/3RDPARTY.
