Using wildly different gcc/binutils for cross compiling that standard compiling on EL7 isn't useful and isn't what was requested in #1440669.

karma: -1 #1440669: -1

There is cross-binuils-2.26-6.el7 already in epel. So corss-binutils-2.25.1 needs Epoch: 1 and all dependencies must be updated to use that epoch.

karma: -1

[root@wsfd-netdev30 ~]# repoquery --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=epel-testing -qa | grep cross cross-binutils-common-0:2.25.1-31.el7.1.noarch cross-gcc-common-0:4.8.5-16.el7.1.noarch [root@wsfd-netdev30 ~]# grep cross-binutils pkgs cross-binutils-common.noarch 2.26-6.el7 epel

I wonder if a new epoch for cross-binutils-common is necessary here?

Anyway, the compilers work. I tested some cross compiles and no issues showed up.

This update has reached 14 days in testing and can be pushed to stable now if the maintainer wishes
