I didn't experience issues and didn't read that others experienced
issues, when using 4.9.1. It seems that Arch Linux does use one 4.9
patch and two 4.8 patches to build 4.9 .
For release model distros such as *buntu, the only problem should be,
that a new release from upstream doesn't fit to the outdated sources of
the other packages provided by official repositories, but I'm not aware
that 4.9 has any serious bugs. If I would have experienced an issue, I
would have downgraded gcc, but I didn't.
Please, don't misinform users about alleged issues, without evidences.
Spreading fear, uncertainty and doubt about a stable release from
upstream for a Linux core component is something very bad.
