Wow good memory, 3 years ago:

I'm compiling with gcc4.1.1 for arm5t big endian, patched for multiple
arm ports (OpenEmbedded) and it still botches that code today.
Works fine with the arithmetic decomposition in the message.
And I never blame the compiler! ;-)


BTW, XFS gives this little machine a nice bump in NFS write
bandwidth. Goes from ~6MB/sec to ~7MB/s. CPU limited, mainly.
