He means that we already know that gcc-3.0.x sucks for embedded targets,
and we would like to know whether gcc-3.1 will suck less.  We have some
reasons to believe that at least on some of them you should see better
results.  If not, it would be good information.

Great.  When you have time, could you re-run your tests on the current
CVS and see if we do better?

Yes, please.
