    2.95.x works fine, a lot of Debian itself is compiled with it. It's
    just the kernel that should not be compiled with 2.95.x, but Debian
    has a "gcc272" package for exactly this purpose. You do need to edit
    the kernels main Makefile and change

    CC =$(CROSS_COMPILE)gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I$(HPATH)

    to

    CC =$(CROSS_COMPILE)gcc272 -D__KERNEL__ -I$(HPATH)

    I wonder why it's not simply

    CC :=$(CROSS_COMPILE)$(CC) -D__KERNEL__ -I$(HPATH)

    .. so that you can do "make CC=gcc272".. oh well.

    Mike.
