The other patches are wordwrapped and one still didn't apply after
fixing that, so please just redo and resend everything. Send them to
yourself first and check that the result still applies OK.

Also, we prefer patch titles to be of the form

subsystem-identifier: what was changed

so a good title for this patch would have been add options to improve cross-sompilation environments
