1. I know you read lkml.

2. The patches are trival.

3. Having them helps using GCC 3.1, which turns out to be a big
winner contrary to 3.0.xx.

4. I use GCC 3.1 becouse I hate having different compilers on the system
and becouse I do some C++ too.

5. We have to do it anyway - so what?

6. In esp. ARM seems to be much better off with GCC 3.1 then anything else.

7. Separating __FUNCTION__ out from string const concatenation allows
the compiler to coalesce the storage used for this string in to one constant!
