    Well I thought of this already and tried my test case without any flags
    but -Wall, with -O2 and -Os. Same result. I also compiled my test case
    with the options used by the kernel (which ATM isn't compiled with -Os),
    same thing.

    I've attached to this email a tarball of what I use to test the
    compiler/binutils. It's faster than recompiling the whole kernel on
    these slow machines!
