Please remind me if there are other pending things I'm > forgetting. 1. I would need to have cp437 and cp850 in iconv. Otherwise mtools cannot accesss fat filesystems, meaning syslinux is broke. I know iconv overhaul is scheduled for 1.1.4 with hopefully getting the table generation code published. But I think these few legacy codepages should be added as a bug fix. 2. Possibly also sysconf() fixes: mapping table 0 to return value -1, and fixing LONG_BIT should be done. 3. I also think having CFI for at least syscall_cpi should be done. Debugging without that is a pain. 4. Other items in my wish list is "sendmmsg() and recvmmsg()" but as discussed it's tricky. 5. And I also had the question if for NEEDED dependencies constructors should be topologically sorted. 1-3 being 'high' priority. - Timo
