Trimmed the CC' as this is a bit of a tangent.

Crosstool did a good job but seems to be less current than we'd like for the
kernel[1]. When using crosstool in the past I found a lot of the complexity
was in *libc to the toolcahins I've built don';t have a libc so they're only
helpful for kernel (or similar) builds.

In terms of "testing", I build a kernel for each toolchain but I don't boot
them and in the past I think blackfin said that what I had wouldn't actually be
runable. Last time I looked the wasn't a non-intel cross-toolchain for blackfin.

I shoudl also mention that a subset of these compilers are used to build test
linux-next daily.

Yours Tony
