it's an egcs bug. i think it's not aligning instructions properly, cuz
i believe the 601 is more strict about alignment. is anyone having
problems using bsd_comp.o, ppp_deflate.o, and hfs.o on a non-601
machine built under pre-R5 (egcs-1.1.1-1c)?

i rebuilt bsd_comp.o and ppp_deflate.o w/ egcs-1.0-2e from dr3 and
they worked perfectly.

egcs-1.1.1-1c failed using -O0, -O2, and -O3 with all combinations of
-mcpu=601, -mcpu=604, and -fno-schedule-insns. -fpic did work, however
it addes an offset table symbol that makes insmod complain.

is this a know problem?
