In Linux, or in egcs?  What percentage of bugs, of the ones you're
referring to, have been established as egcs bugs?  From what I've
read, lots of *Linux* bugs have been found, and the Linux people
are fixing them up on an as-found basis, meanwhile recommending
people needing reliable Linux kernels compile with gcc 2.7, which
doesn't expose so many of these bugs.
