Signed-off-by wouldn't help. The copyright assignment is done so that
the FSF owns the copyright in the majority of the GCC code. If I add
a Signed-off-by to your patch that doesn't have any effect on your
copyright of the code.

It certainly does add a hurdle for contributors to GCC, but it's not a
policy that is likely to change.

Anyway, I'll fix this one way or another ASAP. Thanks again.
