As for the kernel I don't really care.  The policy is that a working kernel
must be buildable with a stock gcc.  Which at times is painful, search for
all the great use of .word in include/asm-mips/ ...  This doesn't say
anything against taking advantage of other toolchains such SDE; it's just
the functionality must be there with a vanilla GNU toolchain of the miminum
supported version which currently still is 3.2.
