[Buildroot] kernel cross compilation problem (at91sam9260)

I had the same problem going from 800k to 3MB kernels. It was not related to compilers. 
The size is due to a large initrd filesystem.
Clean everything out, the standard cleans don't seem to do it. 
I can't say what exactly gets it done, removing init ram filesystem, but it looks like toolchain rebuild as well is required.
, and in .config
Best Regards,

Dropping back to using gcc 3.4.6  and uclib x.x.28 worked for me.  - not a proper fix, but it was a combination that worked andI was fed up of trying combinations :)
