Finding a GCC enhancement to implement for your thesis is, I would
think, unlikely to meet the academic requirements. On the other hand, I
would recommend reading journals from ACM SIGPLAN, the ACM Digital
Library, etc., finding an interesting topic in the academic sense and
use GCC as a basis for experimenting with that idea. GCC is much better
suited to such experimentation than it was 5-10 years ago.
