*sigh* this isn't just powerpc. this is x86 too. I can't get ANY kernels
to compile with gcc 2.95 or 2.91. Folks, I think at this point it's
SERIOUSLY advisable to just abandon gcc 2.9x as primary and change it to
optional. There's just too much stuff that will NOT compile with it. I
mean, hell, the damn thing is spitting out asm errors for 'mov' on x86!
I've had NO problems with 2.7.2.3 or 2.8.x to date.
