 a) makes certain glbic code harder to work (which already does work, at
 b) is inconsistent with every single other architecture that does run
 c) is inconsistent with my tree, and basically forces me to distribute
    binutils and gcc patches in addition to the gcc one-liner I already

All in all this strikes me as not too smart.

BTW, did you fix gcc to work with -mdisable-fpregs and actually make the
kernel use that in the CVS tree ?  It caused a lot of oopses here before
I worked around it (patch is at
