Hello TinyCCers,

Long-time lurker here.  A few years ago, I spent a lot of time on
tinycc, but had to stop.  I don't like that all my patches are rotting
in my private repo.  I would estimate that I have nearly a hundred of
them, possibly a lot more if my private commit logs are accurate.

Almost all of them come with test cases to match, and I'll add test
cases for the ones that don't, when appropriate.

I just wanted to say hello before loading the patch cannon.  I think I
will launch one per day, and if no one has problems with the patches,
I may step it up and go faster.

My initial goal, way back when, was to compile dietlibc and busybox
and eventually binutils and gcc.  So most of the patches come out of
that - adding features that gcc and gas have that tinycc does not.  A
smaller number of the patches are legitimate bug-fixes, but they're
peppered haphazardly into the commit-stream.  I'd rather not sort them
all into priority bins because I'm afraid I'll just give up during the
sorting.  I'd like to just post them chronologically as they were

Comments are welcome, of course.
