Re: gcc48, drmkms issues with i386

My previous attempt at "-O0" was masked because subsequent nested Makefile
inclusions reset "COPTS" and "CFLAGS" seems not to be used.  The following
change allowed compiling the relevant bits of pxeboot with "-O0":

The resulting binary was about 92KB in size, rather than 64KB, which was
a promising sign.  Its behavior was different, although not successful:

prot_to_real: can't return to 0001296D

At this point, rather than resetting, the machine instead continued
on to boot from local disk.  Since it has "mbr_bootsel" installed on
disk, the last part of the display actually looked like:

prot_to_real: can't return to 0001296DFn: Diskn
1: Foo
2: Bar

This "pxeboot_ia32.bin" was built with the native (cross) i386 tool-
chain (on netbsd-5/i386 host).  Building some stuff from pkgsrc has
shown me that the i386 gcc48 gets hung up on things that the amd64
gcc48 doesn't.  I'll try the PXE booter built via the amd64 toolchain
next and see if its behavior is different.
