Well, it seems like Jiri and I both ran into the firmware thing

gcc 7 is not actually released yet, so I guess my message above is
slightly misleading.

gcc 6 seems to have released about a year after development started
and gcc 7 development started in April, so I guess there's still quite a
lot of time before it's officially out.

Although the NetBSD people seemed to have run into the same issue using
GCC 5.4, I'm not sure what to make of that.
