This area contains patches that add TI MSP430 support to the GNU development toolchain.
The intent is that this contain all released patches. The file RELEASES indicates which patches were collected into mspgcc releases: these collections may be assumed to work together, while mixing/matching other versions might result in problems.
The Patches repository is intended for maintainers and downstream packagers. Users who simply want a working mspgcc should follow the standard installation instructions for their system.
Packagers can obtain a local copy that tracks future additions with the following command:
git checkout -b patches git://mspgcc.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/mspgcc/mspgcc
The mspgcc patches intentionally do not add version information, as it is the responsibility of the packager to select from among the "official" patches provided here and any distribution-specific changes.
LTS release series starting with 20120406 will include the following content in the gcc-X.Y.Z/gcc/DEV-PHASE file, allowing the compiler release version to be identified with the -version option:
mspgcc LTS YYYYMMDD unpatched
Similarly, for binutils the file binutils-X.Y/bfd/version.h in the release will have the following line:
#define BFD_MSPGCC_VERSION LTS YYYYMMDD unpatched
Downstream maintainers should update this file to represent in some way the set of patches that have been applied to the release. If all and only official mspgcc LTS patches are applied, one possibility is to replace "unpatched" with "patched to YYYYMMDD" representing the date of the most recent patch download from the corresponding LTS patch directory under https://sourceforge.net/projects/mspgcc/files/Patches/LTS/.
