ppc32 weirdness with gcc-4.0 in 2.6.11-rc4

2.6.11-rc4 built with gcc-3.4.3 works fine on my eMac.
Building with gcc-4.0.0 (20050220) however gives me a kernel
with dead USB, and thus no keyboard or mouse, but everything
else seems to be working.

A diff between dmesg on the two kernels has an interesting nugget:
