Ok, I'll go get the new gcc then... What is the easiest way to set it up
so that it will compile a.out (and link with or 4.7.whatever)
by default but generate ELF when asked to?

Sorry about this question not being kernel related but the answer might
be of some interest to people here, so I'm asking it publicly anyway...


PS: thanks to you all for pointing out that ELF uses the extra register only
when accessing shared objects.
