    What bug exactly?

    I'm sometimes using kernels compiled with gcc 4.0 and without
    -fno-unit-at-a-time and except for the kernel image being smaller I
    haven't noticed any difference. Besides this, all architectures except
    i386 and um are not disabling unit-at-a-time.

    There are a few parts of the kernel that might still have stack problems
    with unit-at-a-time, but I assume that's not what you are talking about?
