To be more precise, it is terrible for compiling old (2.2 based) linux kernels,
because these old linux kernels don't have any of the bug fixes needed to work
with new gcc releases.  It should be fine for compiling 2.4 based kernels.
In fact, nearly everybody uses a gcc-2.95 based compiler for their ia64 kernel
