Kudos for getting that far with gcc-3.2.1 and the test suite.
I'm still trying to get off my duff and run it here against 3.0.4 to
get a baseline.  I hadn't thought of running it against the simulator;
does the simulator support ppc403/ppc405 and ppc750?  That might come in handy here.

It might be helpful if you posted a list of the regressions
between gcc-3.0.4 and gcc-3.2.1.  Montavista Linux 3.0 uses
a gcc-3.2.x compiler, it'd be interesting to see if they
have resolved some of those.
