Thank you very much, that it is very kind from your side to share such patch.
Next step would be (for next patch avoid mailing list) the use of the
BTS (Bug Tracking System) either sending an email to
email@example.com with the right headers or using `reportbug'
which makes your life easier.
Would you like to send this patch to `binutils' package for review via BTS?
Just for next posible patches remember to comment on what the patch it
is about, if you have test it or not, update any documentation and
maybe add a changelog entry. Anyhow, all you have sent seems fine for
"Our Sun unleashes tremendous flares expelling hot gas into the Solar
System, which one day will disconnect us."
