Hi Qmastery,

Ok, that sounds like the best solution for the time being -- making it 2.88. Of course the binaries I'm building now with GCC 9 have some kind of bug in them; they crash on kernel startup. I'm trying to debug that first. But also, I'm in the middle of moving house, so it'll be a little bit longer before I have time to sort it all out. When I do, I'll do a proper 0.91 release for it, with whatever fix might be needed for RAM disk booting.

Just an update: I'm experimenting with using clang now, in place of gcc. It looks promising, size-wise, but the kernel still crashes on startup, in what looks like the same sort of way. I think it's probably a linking issue.
