I thought more about this... and looked into Documentation/Changes again
for the compiler version. All the reports at linux-kernel about timings
and kernel image size made me think, that gcc 3.x is no problem anymore.
And it seems that gcc 3.3.2 miscompiles something with my configuration. I
did a quick test using 2.95.3 today in the morning and the bootup seemed
I'm at work now, but I'll do some more tests tonight.
Sorry, that I've wasted your time, I should have known this.
If anybody is interested to track down the miscompilings, I can provide
any info needed. The least what I can do...
