    gcc44: Instruct linkers to create GNU hash tables
    The real-time linker has just been taught how to use GNU hash tables
    to speed up symbol lookup.  However, the linkers only generate SysV
    hashes by default, so the specs file is being altered to generate
    both types of hashes for every shared library and dynamic executable
    for a while.  Maybe after a release or two we can consider only
    generating the superior GNU hash, which will break forward compatibility
    with older releases.
