that was to doko not you.
I'd be happy to chat, but you've articulated your position fairly well.
If there's stuff not in the bug you'd like me to know about I'd be happy
to set things up, but from the bug logs, your position seems fairly
Let's see if my summary is accurate:
* This bug is creating a number of ftbfses, particularly for
larger//more complex libraries on mips.
* You have a preferred minimal work-around you tried to upload
* Doko requested you not upload something until it was patched upstream.
* You want a solution sooner than that.
Is that approximately correct?
