I can't seem to get the kernel to compile with egcs 1.0 or 1.0.1.
I get kernel panics on boot right after the NCR53C8xx driver and
before the DE4X5 driver (both compiled into the kernel). I haven't had
time to copy all the panic info by hand (I don't know of any way to print
the screen on a boot panic) so I can't really give more information. In
case it's important, I compiled egcs with gcc- from redhat 5.0. I
haven't tried it with a pre-built egcs binary yet.
