Re: GCC 4.5.3 breaks sandpoint's altboot

Hi PPC users!

I want to tell you that the problem is solved! Gcc 4.5.3 was innocent and
generates really good code compared to 4.1.3. I was misguided by the
observation that V4.1 hides a bug in altboot much better than V4.5 does.

The cause of all the troubles and horror stories was, that the bootloader's
startup code didn't disable interrupts in the MSR.

Sorry for the noise.
