RFC: Raise required gcc version to 3.2 ?

From: Adrian Bunk

What is the oldest gcc we want to support in kernel 2.6?

Currently, it's 2.95 .

I'd suggest raising this to 3.2 which should AFAIK not be a problem for
any distribution supporting kernel 2.6 .

Is there any good reason why we should not drop support for older
