  Do you know how far the other TenDRA (Ten15) guys have gotten in this
  respect?  I remember the guys working on the code mentionned problems
  in dealing with inlined asm code, clearly non-portable.  Would it be
  possible to build a portion of the MI kernel code with tcc and link it
  to pre-built (with another compiler) portion of MD code?
