Sorry, I wasn't clear. 4.0.3 *does* have the one arm-related patch
available applied. Stuff for sh or coldfire or gcc 3.4.x did not apply,
so I did not apply those patches.

4.4.0 did not get patched, because it's not clear any apply. The diff
for 4.0.3 probably wouldn't work. I could "interpret" the contents of
the diff myself, and modify the corresponding file in 4.4.0 if necessary.
