1) EABI will work fine on ARM920T (and other ARMv4) targets 
2) Currently, until other patches, a number of the available gcc choices
   do not currently build a compiler, let alone make it to the application
3) The proposed fix in 1406 attempts to ensure that down the road we don't
   fall into this trap again.
