Ok, I'll fixup Kconfig deps then.

I'll try your tree and port over fixes if needed.

 Bernhard> This is fixed with gcc trunk (i.e. 4.4.0).

Ok, we won't get that in BR before the release, so I'll mark it as
BROKEN for now.

Exactly, and apparently no one cares, so I'll mark it as BROKEN for
now. Is nios2 support evan available in upstream gcc?

 Bernhard> s/broken/not yet supported/

True, but the outcome is the same ;)

 >> sh4: ok

 Bernhard> both sh64 and sh* build fine for me.

Ok, will check.

 >> x86_64: broken in uclibc

 Bernhard> works for me. What's failing?

uclibc build - See bottom of http://uclibc.org/~jacmet/br/x86_64.log

 Bernhard> there are SH and SH64. SH[234] are just SH variants -- think

Yes, but the kernel only has arch/sh - Should that also be used for

 Bernhard> Strictly speaking this should depend on

Ok, will do.
