Not sure if this is gcc4 specific..but since no one has reported the
build breaking I think it is. From what I see the fix to this is to turn
off ia32 emulation if you are using gcc4, or hack up fs/ otherwise wait
till 2.6.11 Xenlinux gets an upgrade to 2.6.12.

This will be a while. We want to substantially merge xen/i386 and xen/x86_64 before undertaking the upgrade.
