Release notes 

The Linaro Toolchain Working Group is pleased to announce the 2012.04 release of Linaro GCC 4.7.

Linaro GCC 4.7 2012.04 is the first release in the 4.7 series. Based off the latest GCC 4.7.0+svn186061 release, it includes performance improvements especially around 64 bit operations.

Interesting changes include:
 * Our first 4.7 based release
 * Updates to GCC 4.7.0+svn186061
 * Better use of 16 bit Thumb-2 instructions for smaller code size
 * Implements 64 bit ones complement in NEON
 * Adds support for the ARMv6 saturation instructions
 * Backports the NEON lexer improvements for faster compilation
 * Backports the 64 bit multiply, divide, and mod improvements

Fixes:
 * LP: #960283 slp pass assert when compiler configure with --enable-checking
