May I repeat:

YOU CAN'T COMPILE LINUX WITH ANYTHING ELSE THAN GCC-2.7.2

Everythign else is on your own risk. 2.0 obviously is not fixed with respect
to newer optimizations. 2.1 has many many problems with its asms (on the x86
platform), in addition to stresssing the compiler.

Until both the kernel and the compilers are fixed (just a matter of time),
please don't blame the compiler nor the kernel, either fix it or don't use
it.
