I have ported Yoshii-san's code to GDB 7.12, attaching an updated
patch. A git repository with my linux-sh branch can be found in [1].

Yutaka Niibe has already reached out to Renesas in Japan and is trying to
get into touch with Yoshii-san, this might take a while though. However,
I have talked with someone at the FSFE knowledgeable with open source
licenses and it looks like we actually don't need the copyright assignment
at all.

If we needed the copyright assignment, we'd probably need it from Renesas
anyway and not from Yoshii-san directly as he wrote the patch while working
for Renesas who consequently are the copyright owners. And since Renesas
already submitted their SH code to gcc, I assume they also already assigned
the FSF copyright assignment (if that's actually needed).

More updates coming soon.
