That's a hard question... 2.95.x compilers used to work and were quite
fast, but newer GCC's features are incorporated into the kernel
sources so it probably will no longer work. Some 3.x based GCC should
probably work.

I am using GCC and binutils right from CVS/SVN in their HEAD
revisions, but not for MIPS. Works for me.
