 It can be something recent and close to binutils 2.30 release date, not
 necessary `master`.

 Do you mean https://sourceware.org/git/gitweb.cgi?p=binutils-
 gdb.git;a=commit;h=9d9c67b06c1bf4c4550e3de0eb575c2bfbe96df9 ?
 > (fwiw I notified Jacek about it, see the stylo bug on Mozilla's bug
 tracker as a patch from him is causing that breakage).
 Where?
 > I think picking the latest stable that works
 2.29.1 ?

 a good idea to me.
