I searched the binutils mailing lists for "Gary Hade" and all I found
was a ppc disassembler patch.  Was it ever submitted to the binutils
group?  Maybe it was only submitted to some IA-64 list?  If it only went
to an IA-64 list, that may be part of the reason why it got dropped.

The other part of the reason is probably that there weren't any active
IA-64 binutils developers at the time.  I'm listed at the IA-64
maintainer, but there was a period in 2002-2003 before and after I left
Red Hat where I could not do much IA-64 related work.  Nowadays, we've
got HJ at Intel who does quite a bit of IA-64 related binutils work.
