Good to see RedHat isn't a trail-blazer of ingenuity and will follow the
herd off the cliff. I'm "kgcc" agnostic, but your argument is weak.

Since you're setting yourself up as a proponent of this can you explain why
RedHat includes a compiler that doesn't work with the kernel? Don't get
grumpy about who did it first or what the old one is named but be clear
what I'm asking. I want to know if the 'gcc' on RedHat 7.0 fixes some
problems that the older compilers suffered from? If there's a good reason
for the new compiler that breaks with the kernel then great, it makes
sense. If it wasn't needed, then it's incredibly stupid.
