Hi Petko,

Both lists are used by the binutils project, so sending to either one
is OK.

Thanks for submitting this patch.  Is there a document describing the
D0 and D1 revisions ?  (I only have access to revision 1.0 of the
Maverick ISA description and I would like to know if there is a newer
version available).

Actually the patch is fine although it was missing a couple of things:

  - a set of ChangeLog entries describing the fixes that have been

  - a patch to the gas testsuite to update the Maverick instruction
It is also worth noting that although is covered by the obvious-change
rule and does not need a copyright assignment, if it had been any
bigger it would have needed one.

The maintainers are listed in the file binutils/MAINTAINERS.  Since
the Maverick is an ARM coprocessor you could have addressed this email
to either myself or Richard Earnshaw, but in any case, sending to the
list is the correct thing to do, so that everybody is kept informed.

If you can submit a revised patch with a set of ChangeLog entries and
a fix to the gas testsuite, I will be happy to apply it.
