I think what I ended up doing was to take the smallest files for that
configuration and packed them up, but the warnings I listed in the
mail don't match the ones for those files. However, it seems the
0xEBFDB964_defconfig/log file got corrupted.
I've uploaded a new copy to http://paste.ubuntu.com/25574959/ now.
I've also experimented with other compiler versions
in the meantime and ran into similar problems on those version but did
not bother to take detailed notes about them since they are likely just
variants of the ones I already reported. If you can work around the
warnings I reported here, I can rerun with all compilers I have to
see if anything else shows up.
