Thanks for the report.

It seems like for binutils the snapshot you are working on has fallen
behind jessie (not to mention sid). Is this likely to be a problem for

The other thing I noticed was that your patches seem to have a lot of
"noise" (i.e. lines of patch not relevant to your changes).  I guess
this is at least in part because you are regenerating some patches. I
don't know if this is possible to fix, but it might make maintainers
more eager to apply your patches.

All the best,
