I was primarily looking at the PRs that marked in the bugzilla
database blocker or critical.  As there were over 256 PRs open, and
the idea is to get GCC-4.0.4 out of the door as soon as possible, I'm
not trying to fix everything; just those that are critical or
blockers.  This is based on the fact that most distros have moved to
GCC-4.1.x or higher.  GCC-4.0.x has been since GCC-4.0.0 to contain
major shortcomings.
