First try to find the .c file that is causing the problem. This may be
easy or not :(. Then check that compiling that file only with egcs-1.1.2
fixes the problem. Then split the file in multiple files to localize the
broken code and them comment the two asm (valid and invalid).

I know it is painfull but this is the only way things will evolve and 
you will have contributed (again) to free software. 

As soon as kernel 2.2.14 is out, I will try to report it
on my MCP750 and will tell you how it goes.

NB : be sure you use -fno-strict-aliasing when compiling as linux is known
to be broken using the strict-aliasin option.
