The i386 does this because later compilers fall over invalid asm() constructs 
in the 2.0 kernels.  As far as I know there should be no problem using EGCS 
for the NetWinder kernel though it sounds like you may want to use -fno-gcse 
to get better code.  I've been using egcs as the standard C compiler on my 
netwinder and other ARM systems for a while now and not had any problems.

EGCS 1.1.1 should be released shortly and HJ Lu is planning to make a 
Linux-specific patch to add ARM and MIPS support.

Sadly I'm in the same boat here.  I'm happy to look at C++ issues if people 
can send me a simple test case but that's about as far as it goes.
