Which should be perfectly find for the kernel. And no, SDE isn't really
a 2.96-based compiler with _vastly_ improved code generation for MIPS
Less than a week ago SDE 5 was released which is based on gcc 3.4 and
similarly contains a large number of mostly MIPS-specific improvments.

No idea about this one.

Since you have problems with all of these you may want to describe those ...
