 Do you have plans to submit your fix upstream?  Preferably with a GAS 
test case (I can help you with that) reduced from the original problematic 
assembly source.  The VAX port has so little target-specific coverage in 
the testsuite and without that it's hard to track quality; we don't know 
what the reference is even.

 Please note that it's not necessary anymore to assign the copyright of 
the FSF to contribute to upstream binutils (cf. binutils/MAINTAINERS):

The alternative is to sign off the contribution by agreeing to the
Developer's Certificate of Origin (version 1.1 or later) and adding a
line to the end of the contribution that looks something like this:

  Signed-off-by: Random J Developer <>

The details of the Developer's Certificate or Origin can be found here:

With the requirement for copyright assignment lifted I do encourage you to 
contribute any local changes you may have so as to save everyone duplicate
