The compile issue with GCC 4.7 toolchain when compiling proprietary MM S/W, is not concluded with Linaro.
As the compile issue is only valid for ICS not for JB. The vendor tarball delivery is not a must for ICS with GCC4.7.

The last status of this issue as follow
Compilation error is fixed with gcc flag, "-mvectorize-with-neon-double", but the resultant build is functionally not tested and correctness of the fix is not confirmed by Linaro Tools team.
