I was trying to set up an emulated platform for continuous GCC bootstrap and
regression testsuite runs, but something broke the ia64 kernel causing EXT4
file system errors in the emulated platform, so I had to scrap that idea.

I tried various ia64 kernel versions, compiling the ia64 kernel with older
GCCs, and compiling SKI with older host (x86_64) GCCs, but nothing worked.
With no known-good starting point there was no reasonable way for me to
debug the problem.
