This is not at all related to my problem. There are 3-4 kernel files in
the kernel which cause gcc to core dump when compiling the sparc V9
instruction set if optimization is turned on. It's not a question of bad
code, or incorrect code. gcc simply falls on its face. The only thing to
do is turn off optimization for those files to work around gcc bugs.
