This is about 4.3 (not yet released). Here are news from

March 9, 2007
       All m68k targets now support ColdFire processors and offer the
       choice between ColdFire and non-ColdFire libraries at configure
       time. There have been several other significant changes to the
       m68k and ColdFire support. This work was contributed by Nathan
       Sidwell of CodeSourcery and others.

More details are in GCC's ChangeLogs (and possibly in gcc 4.3.0 release

IMHO Rockbox should support GCC 4.3 when it is released.
