[U-Boot-Users] global data pointer on arm

I'm currently trying to replace armboot with u-boot-1.1.1 on a custom
board with an epxa10 chip. While debugging, I discovered that the
compiled code of getenv_r destroys the content of r8, which holds the
global data pointer. Of course this makes u-boot fail. Is this a bug in
u-boot or the toolchain? Or did I miss something else?
