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.
