There is now a [mostly] working in-tree toolchain for HPPA.
I applied my binutils and gcc changes to the in-tree binutils
and gcc3 sources.  The only problem is that a few program cause
ld to either die an assertion or segfault.

The libc assembly source have been moved to the new assembler
conventions.  However, ld.elf_so needs a lot of help since it's
been extensively reworked since there was a working toolchain.
(hppa needs it's own version of _rtld_bind added to hppa_reloc.c)

I haven't tried to build a kernel but I would expect that
libkern's .S files as well as hppa's need to be updated.
