This just changes a comment in a .s file (Strange gcc uses the preprocessor on 
it.  I thought it only handled .S files) but it takes the comment as a 
directive.  I guess 2.95 didnt handle # with space in front of it and gcc 
3.3.2 does.  Should work with 2.95 also, havent tried yet.  

Aside from the packaging flamewar, The point of this work is to try to get gcc 
updated to the 3.x branch (and while we're at it, binutils to 2.14.x and gdb 
to 6.x) in support of the x86-64 port (Should we call it amd64 since i think 
they officially changed the name?).  Im expecting to have a preliminary patch 
to add PAE done this weekend, but since I dont totally understand the impact 
of all the changes it requires, it might require some higher up review and 
lots of testing.  After that I can add 64-bit elf support to loader if 
desired, and we could be on the way.  Im also working on merging binutils 
2.14 into my CVS, but I dont know the best way to send that out once it's 
working.  Should I just tar up the directory to be imported and send that 
directly to Matt?  It seems like it would be big to send to the mailing list.
