I tried to update newlib (from an old copy from couple of years ago),
but got curious regressions localized to tests related to ffs

brgds, H-P

The added comment above mmix_init_libfuncs says the most, but
see also the special case in optab-libfuncs.c:init_optabs.
There's no __ffssi2 in libgcc for "64-bit targets" (__ffsSI2
becomes __ffsdi2).  This may not be worthwile of more elegant
generic handling, but to do this properly, the middle-end would
have to open-code promotion of arguments and call __ffsdi2 for
__builtin_ffs instead of the cop-out of forwarding to ffs, which
is bound to break similarly for other targets.  I guess no other
target has seen this only because LP64 targets with neither ffs
nor leading nor trailing zeros instructions are rare.  I intend
to back-port this to the gcc-8-branch too, given the usual
freedom for non-primary-or-secondary targets (not strictly a

The mentioned regressions were fixed with this; committed.

	Handle a library implementation of ffs calling __builtin_ffs.
	* config/mmix/mmix.c (TARGET_INIT_LIBFUNCS): Override with...
	(mmix_init_libfuncs): New function: make __builtin_ffs expand
	to __ffsdi2.
