Thread-topic: [Xen-devel] Which GCC is best for building Xen?
User-agent: Microsoft-Entourage/
GCC 4.x is supported. Any regressions in compatibility with gcc 4.x should
be reported so that they can be fixed -- usually this means avoiding
compiler warnings in subdirectories which are compiled with -Werror.
Subdirectories which do not use -Werror have a reason for that -- e.g., not
wanting to needlessly diverge from upstream qemu by putting in workarounds
for otherwise harmless compiler warnings.
