I agree on the 3.4.6 R3 and I will take this on me.

On the 4.2 idea I have mixed feelings, cfr.
<URL:http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/2007-05/msg00670.html> where Mark mentions
unresolved ARM problems (which were perhaps (part of ?) the regressions I've
seen with the tentative 4.2 tryout I did).  I think we better await a stable
4.2.x release for ARM before really switching over.  The 4.2.1 release
is tentatively mid July so we can evaluate its status then.

In the meanwhile I've cleaned up our current patch set a bit so that it
really only contains necessary GCCSDK bits which will help a future
