I don't think they're the same project -- and neither are the various toolchain projects the same project, anymore than gnulib is the same project as coreutils merely because changes to both often happen in synchrony. They are simply projects with *some* close coupling between them -- but even that coupling is optional (you can build GCC and perhaps even glibc with a binutils that doesn't support IFUNC, and nothing goes wrong).
