    it's correct, since with -ffreestanding gcc no longer has the right to
    assume it had a full libc available.

    Yes, -ffreestanding disables gcc builtins, but the correct fix for this
    issue is not to remove -ffreestanding, but to check where we want to use
    gcc builtins and enable them explicitely.

    This takes more time than the quick'n'dirty patch that removed
    -ffreestanding, but it does it right (and we might perhaps get rid of
    things like include/asm-i386/string.h).
