This makes sense, but I also have a binutils-2.16.1, gcc-3.4.4
and the same uClibc code and gcc-3.4.4 does produce a valid
dynamic loader with '-Os'. When looking at the dissassembly
for that, the _syscall1 and other functions are inlined. So,
apparently things have changed with regards to inling from the
gcc-3.4.x series to gcc-4.1.x? I can upload the binaries for
the gcc-3.4.4 produced version if needed.
