As you can see at LKML or on this discuss Arnd sent bunch of patches which have
impact to Microblaze ABI. The biggest one are some changes in some header files.
For current state and state to next merge window is that you can use for noMMU kernel
(which is in mainline) with old toolchain from petalinux. I do it and you can do it too.
If you want to use/add MMU kernel you can't use toolchain from petalinux because there is old gcc.
New gcc is at http://developer.petalogix.com/git/gitweb.cgi.
From 2.6.31 we will do big cut and we break compatibility with old toolchain because
it is not acceptable to add it to kernel.org. It wasn't easy decision but it is new start
and I need that changes for some reasons.
This change will have impact to uClibc and glibc too.
John: Can you clarify strategy about toolchain?
