Both 3.0.4 and the upcoming 3.1 are fine for use with the current PPC 2.4
kernels. There is only one known issue with inlined functions that take and
return 64-bit values, these may lead to extreme stack usage. A fix for this
might go into 3.1pre CVS during the next days.
After this has been decided I'll upload gcc-3.1pre RPMS and announce them.
