Interesting. But I can't accept this until I can test it. I don't have
the time to build gcc from scratch, and currently none of my boxes have
a gcc 5 install.

I wonder who's responsible for
https://www.kernel.org/pub/tools/crosstool/files/bin/x86_64/

If they can add a i386/x86_64 build for gcc5 I'll be happy to download
it and test this patch.

Thanks,
