This appears to be a gcc bug when -fno-omit-stack-pointer is used (which
we mostly don't need on ppc anyway except that another gcc stupidity makes
it mandatory for -pg which ftrace needs).

We're working on a two fold workaround: removing -fno-omit-stack-pointer
in all the cases where we don't really need it, and for when we do (ie,
CONFIG_FTRACE becaues of -pg), using -mno-sched-epilog which seems to
work around it.

The root cause in gcc hasn't been fully identified yet.

Ben.
