Currently I'm working with ARM based embedded systems. I prefer 2.4
kernels to 2.6 as they are smaller thus leaving more flash for jffs2.
Not speaking of the kernel a gcc 4.1.1 compile of code for a LPC2103
resulted in a clearly smaller binary as the same compile with gcc 3.4.
Thus I really would like to be able to use gcc 4.x with 2.4 kernels.
There are even kernel miscompiles with gcc 3.4 that might be fixed with
gcc 4 (one has to try).
