That would be enough for me to be convinced.

Can you do the following command on this platform, replacng the cpu
option with whatever cpu you are compiling for, and the thumb bit if
need be to get arm32 compilation?  Maybe the -m options are
pointless on your platform as the defaults would be the right ones
to compile for it.

gcc -mcpu=arm9tdmi -mthumb -dM -E -xc /dev/

Please email me the results.  I want to get this from several people
who do or do not have the frame pointer omitted and see if there is
some define there I can use to select the right switch function.

I'll add the arm32 patch when I get the energy to work through the
stackless related tasks I have been putting aside.
