Not exactly. It has to do with -funit-at-a-time. In the
it is assumed that gcc will not reorder top level asm statements and
functions. For gcc-3.3.x and earlier this was a valid assumption. With
3.4.x and later it is not.
Thanks for the information. The board is up, when the kernel is compiled with the above mentioned option.
