According to Bastian Blank, gcc 4.2 currently produces broken sparc 
kernel images.

Another thing which comes to mind: we have recently announced that 
sparc32 machines are not going to be supported in lenny. Transition to 
the new gcc version seems like a perfect time to turn on the 
ultrasparc specific optimizations in gcc by default. Do you think it 
is feasible? I currently have no idea what breakage such a change 
might cause.
