I think by that you mean this guy:

as --version
GNU assembler 20051219 (SUSE Linux)
Copyright 2005 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

This assembler was configured for a target of `x86_64-suse-linux'.

at least this is one incarnation of it. I had to install SLES10 SP3
with the unpatched binutils version in kvm to test. And yes, the kernel
builds fine. Let me know if I should run some randconfigs, in addition.

Btw, I'm keeping the kvm image for future testing with the bat from hell :).
