Same here ;)

Compiling U-Boot (latest CVS) is no problem on gcc-3.4.3, as long, as
you are not addressing ARM targets and of course it works!

For kernel compilation, you need at least kernel 2.4.28 or higher when
using gcc 3.4.x - or some patches that fix these attribute issues
(and other stuff, that changed)
