Okay, I've tried building Xen/Xenolinux with GCC 3.0.4. Although I
didn't see your bug, I saw enough other weirdness (e.g., the
start-of-day TSC skew calculations are broken) that I am convinced GCC
3.0.x is a bad choice!

Please move to a more recent GCC (e.g. GCC 3.2.2 seems to work, and
I've seen 3.3.x working in the past).
