you'll probably need to do a clean build, though at least
tools/gcc itself will be OK.
as always, please send-pr or email me with issues related
I tried to boot a sparc64 kernel that I think was built after the switch
on an Ultra 45, and it fails to find any disks. I see the same problem
with a netbsd-9 branch kernel. This looks very similar to PR
port-sparc64/54211, except that mine is an mtp controller. That PR was
after sparc64 was switched to GCC 7, so my first instinct is the problem
may be due to GCC 7 and GCC 8. I haven't had any time to do any debugging
yet, but hope to work on it soon.
One thing I did note is that both the netbsd-9 kernel and the current
kernel boot on my Ultra 45 without crashing in the audio driver that
started when sparc64 was switched to GCC 6.
