Hi Hauke,

I noticed your change made in "toolchain/binutils" recently:

binutils: add binutils 2.25.1

This adds binutils 2.25.1 as an option to OpenWrt.

Signed-off-by: Hauke Mehrtens <hauke at hauke-m.de>

git-svn-id: svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/trunk@46874 3c298f89-4303-0410-b956-a3cf2f4a3e73

First of all I cannot find that patch in neither OpenWRT mailing list
(I mean openwrt-devel at lists.openwrt.org) nor in OpenWRT patchwork.

Did I overlook something?

But my real question was in "toolchain/binutils/Config.in" you added
the following:
       config BINUTILS_VERSION_2_25_1
               bool "Linaro binutils 2.25.1" <-- note "Linaro" word

But in all other places I see there's no mention of "Linaro" for that
2.25.1 version.

In fact PKG_SOURCE_URL:=@GNU/binutils/ for it so it looks like this is
pristine binutils with no Linaro changes.

So probably description of BINUTILS_VERSION_2_25_1 should be changed.
