The toolchain can be found here:
http://www.plugcomputer.org/405/us/gplugd/tool-chain/arm-marvell-linux-gnueabi.tar.bz2

But since it turns out to be a compiler issue I dont know if its worth
to be investigated further. I think the best solution to avoid that
structure alignment problem is to simply use another toolchain.

Dave, I thank you very much for your help and efforts to clarify that
this is actually not a bug in the kernel.

Thx,
Lino
