the archlinux avr-gcc seams to be a standard unpatched gcc compiled for the
avr target. I would prefere to base the main avr-gcc package on the atmel
releases as those have historically been of higiher quality for avr usage.
That means avr-gcc will be upgraded to the atmel release 3.5.0 based on gcc
4.9.2 soon. Will that help? Otherwise my suggestion would be that we
introduce a new package, say avr-gcc5, that we base on the gnu release
5.2.0 and keep avr-gcc following the atmel releases.
