We need push on that. Looking at 

http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2006-04/msg00291.html

there seems to be a missing understanding, why the cache
barriers are needed. I guess the patch could be improved
by pointing directly to the errata section of the R10k
user manual. Or even better copy the text out of the user
manual. That should make clear why this patch is needed.

Peter did you do the copyright assigment ? That's probably
the second part, which needs to be done.

Thomas.
