I have read that Alan Cox said, that they tested the 'new' gcc 
extensively before shipping. I trust Alan Cox as a extroidinary 
kernel hacker. I am sure that he would have compilained loudly to 
his employers, if gcc 2.96 was just "good enough" (even though, to 
compile the kernel, RH added kgcc). After reading that statement 
he made (I can't find the exact text), I changed my mind about it. 
But I still wont be upgrading to it anytime soon.
