To be more exhaustive, for release architectures there are also patches
concerning the arm target and for other architectures patches concerning
the alpha, ia64 and sparc targets.

The two MIPS libffi patches have been accepted upstream (i.e. in the
libffi git repository) 1.5 years ago for one and 4 years ago for the
other. I know there hasn't been any recent libffi release, so what can
be done to sync the gcc repository? Would it be possible to stop using
that outdated embedded copy and use the debian libffi package instead?
