    Before someone takes that the wrong way - Richard Earnshaw worked on
    porting binutils + gcc to the ARM architecture. I worked on converting
    that toolchain to work for ARM Linux - supporting the a.out shared
    libraries and other Linux specific features.

    Changing the ABI was, and still is completely outside my level of
    knowledge of gcc.
