I fear not enough (but I'm not sure) - and since Marciej didn't have
access to a MIPS machine he couldn't test everything properly. The
patches from Marciej didn't go into the binutils cvs archive, some
people were not totally happy with them - and some of his patches have
never been commented on :-(.
Currently I'm encountering one bug in binutils after the other :-(.
I'm in contact with a binutils developer at SGI and hope he fixes
those bugs. I've disabled symbol versioning in glibc and managed to
come a wee bit further.
I'm not sure if the bugs I encountered are in the symbol versioning
support or in another part of the linker. But disabling symbol
versioning I have one free variable less ;-).
