On that note, I'd really like to see better binary availability of cross
compilers. While it's improved over the last few years mostly due to the
crossgcc stuff it's still a pain. Ideally, they would be available through
the distribution package manager even but failing that some dedicated place
on kernel.org with x86->lots and some of the more widely used other
combinations would quite definitely be good. Perhaps not really directly
relevant to this thread as such, but still good.

Andrew maintain{s,ed} a number of them at

http://userweb.kernel.org/~akpm/cross-compilers/

But as you see, most of the stuff there is really old again...
