Actually the specific breakage I was thinking about was the stupid
syscall usage in kdebase/kdeutils SYS_sysinfo instead of using sysinfo().
It started failing on mips around the time linux-kernel-headers came

Overall I agree that the toolchain people have been doing a great job.
Its just that unexpected breakage will happen when they are updated,
thats part of the point of a freeze. The tricky part is balancing it,
fixing current problems without creating much new breakage. :)
