I suspect the asm code is not compatible with gcc one way or the other.
I could probably write an inline asm kernel for hppa, but it would work
with hppa-linux-gcc, not sure for hppa-hpux-gcc (and certainly not with 
hppa-hpux-cc) though it is my firm belief any box running HPUX should be
upgraded to GNU/Linux as soon as possible.

Bill, who had some arguments with HPUX in the past...
