It seems that we're on the same mailing lists but to get the record

  1. gcc 3.4.3, created with buildroot compiles u-boot, it does not boot
     the system. I haven't had the time to look into this for our
     boards. We use Wolfgang's toolchain for compiling Das U-Boot.
  2. gcc 3.4.3 compiles the kernel and the kernel boots and does what it
     is expected to do without any hickup. I've been testing this for
     over 5 months on both 2.6.x kernels and 2.4.x kernels (all released
     kernels since 2005).
  3. in our experience, gcc 3.4 creates faster PPC code when compared to
     the 3.3 compilers.

Soft, yes. Weak, no.
