That said, it is unstable, so people getting problems there should be
able to give good debug info, i have not heard yet of problems though.

Yep, 3.3 for the packages i uploaded, and 3.2 for the other kernels i
used before the sources had 3.3 problems, and for older 2.4.18 kernels i
use on my pegasos box.

You just need to rebuild your own kernel with MAKEFLAGS="CC=gcc-2.95".
