The question is that toolchain whether this compiles a working
dslinux build or not.

I have patched several gcc versions (up to 4.2) so that I could
build a toolchain based on those versions, including 8bit write
support (see the patches in toolchain/).

However, I could not compile working builds of dslinux with those
toolchains. The kernel just crashed upon boot.
That's why we're stuck with the current 4.0.4-based toolchain.
