:Committed. We don't have gcc-4.3 or icc in 1.12 so I don't think this needs

    I wouldn't recommend using a cvs commit line like that, it's liable
    to create problems.

    What I suggest is you do a checkout, in a different directory, of
    the 1.12 release branch.  Do the MFC's within that checkout and commit
    normally.  Most of the time you can patch changes from HEAD into
    a checked out release by using something like this:

    cvs diff -r<rev1> -r<rev2> file | patch

    It's more steps to do it this way, but much safer and you can review
    the changes made prior to committing them.
