Yes, quoting the whole patch was probably not necessary :-)

My first attempt at the merge was a real mess and a right pain, so I put
the two files in as a compromise.  However, I have made another attempt
and ,although it took a while,  it seems to be going ok.  How about we put
the two in for now (as that will allow the merge of more platforms to
continue) and I will supply a further patch in a few days that combines
the two trapsxx.c files?
