Perhaps related to this there was this announcement 
(http://lwn.net/Articles/272048/) that the Linux kernel was incompatible 
with gcc 4.3 because the new gcc series changed some assumptions about 
x86 processor flag.  I think this problem is no longer of concern for 
the Linux kernel, but may still exist in other software.
