New compiler tools release: cris-dist-1.16

There's a new release of the compiler tools.  For GNU/Linux,
this release is expected to be used together with linux-headers
for linux-2.4.14 (included in cris-dist-linux-headers-1.16.tar.gz),
but there should be no issues using this release together with
older kernels.  It has been tested together with deboard_lx-R2.0.0.
No compatibility issues are expected from cris-dist-1.15 to
cris-dist-1.16; you do not have to re-build anything.

These bugs have been fixed:

  - (GNU/Linux only): Glibc termios.h definitions for
    baudrates above 460800 baud were wrong.

  - A C/C++ compiler bug, expected to generate incorrect code
    on rare occasions (but not found in "live" code).

  - A C/C++ compiler bug, causing it to emit "Internal compiler
    error in `cris_print_operand'" instead of a proper error,
    when encountering incorrect assembly code.

  - (Newlib/libgloss only; no known applications): A dummy
    (always failing) _fcntl function has been added to enable
    linking for test purposes.

The compiler tools are available in three forms: as a source
SRPM, as a binary RPM and also as "pure" sources; gzipped
tar-balls.  The binary RPM is suitable for i386-type host
machines (i[3456]86-pc-linux-gnu) running Red Hat Linux release
6.2 to 7.2.  For Debian systems there has been reports of
successful conversion of the RPM to .deb using the "alien"

The SRPM and RPM are available at:

The corresponding source tar-balls is in four parts at:

If you need to install from the tar-ball sources (though the
binary RPM and source SRPM are strongly recommended), first
unpack the cris-dist-1.16.tar.gz tar-ball, then "cd cris-dist-1.16"
and unpack the latter three tar-balls in that directory.
Further installation instructions are available in the file
README in the cris-dist-1.16.tar.gz tar-ball.

Older releases are moved to the subdirectory "old" with every
new release.
