This may not have to do with gcc, fyi, especially with link failures.  I'd
have to see the linker error messages before making the determination of
what's at fault, though.

I suppose that depends.  I haven't tried 3.0 with a kernel in ages (and
back then, it did not go well).  I've heard mixed results since then, so
it may depend on which drivers are being compiled.
