I doubt they're actually fully implemented in OSX's llvm-gcc 4.2.1.  Do you
have any supporting documentation or research on that?  Also the llvm-gcc
4.2.1 that OSX shipped with 4.2.1 was a pretty tragic mistake on their
part, IMHO.  It's a branch of code that upstream considers deprecated and
unsupported, and has known bugs.  See this bug link upstream: .
