Hello,

Below is the patch that has been committed in trunk (Revision: 187075).
We like to backport it to GCC 4.7 branch as couple of AMD processors require this change for fma3 instruction generation.

Bootstrapping and testing are successful. 

Is it OK to commit in GCC 4.7 branch?

Regards
Ganesh
