    [IA64] Simulator bootloader fails with gcc 4 · 4aec0fb1

    After building a fresh tree with gcc 4 I can't boot the simulator as
    the bootloader loader dies with 
    
    loading /home/ianw/kerntest/kerncomp//build/sim_defconfig/vmlinux...
    failed to read phdr
    
    After some investigation I believe this is do with differences between
    the alignment of variables on the stack between gcc 3 and 4 and the
    ski simulator.  If you trace through with the simulator you can see
    that the disk_stat structure value returned from the SSC_WAIT_COMPLETION
    call seems to be only half loaded.  I guess it doesn't like the alignment
    of the input.
