https://github.com/mickael-guene/gcc has a 5.2 branch and "master"
updated 20 hours ago, although I'm not sure how much of master updating
is an automatic tracking branch and how much is the account owner
updating things.

Nobody does copyright assignments voluntarily. In the long run those
kill projects.

Github says https://github.com/mickael-guene was last active November
30th (commiting stuff to his cortex-m simulator fork), so he's still
around...

I'm tempted to try to shoehorn the gcc and binutils here into
musl-cross-make and see what happens. But I've already _got_ a cortex-m
targeted toolchain that... can't build musl. Because of the assembly
stuff. So I should probably poke at that first.
