The patch solves a problem in gcc-2.95.2 but vanilla 2.95.3 already
contains a fix. The patch also adds some stuff needed to configure for a
raw i386-elf and some sparc targets.

If you want to configure gcc-2.95.3 for an ix86-linux target then you
may (hopefully) safely ignore the patch.

I think gcc-2.95.3 for ix86-linux doesn't contain any glibc
cache-related dependencies anymore thus you should be able to use the
same tools for ix86 based linux and eCos systems.

Please note that I may be completely wrong since I never tried that
