Hi Chen,

Thanks for the problem report. Please note that we have moved on to gcc 4.8 based
tool-chain so I would suggest you switch over to it too (4.4 support is really
phased out).

With current 4.8 tools, I don't see the error you report.

Please use the arc-4.8-dev branch of toolchain repo on github for building the
tools, assuming that is where you got the sources for 4.4 tools too.

Jeremy, Claudiu, Joern maintain the gcc and rest of GNU toolchain ports for ARC so
please add them to any future posting on toolchain issues.
