Bug#268115: [PR 18589] could optimize FP multiplies better
Thanks for the detailed bug reports and your interest in improving
Debian. I'm just doing some cleanup, I am not involved with the GCC package.
It seems that very recently the issue was picked by somebody upstream
and they fixed it. According to the information in the upstream bug
report , it's going to be released in 4.8 series.
Test the patch if you are interested, and stay tuned.
And please somebody close the bug report when this version of GCC is
included in Debian.
