NM will try to accommodate to missing features and should mostly should

That's quite good news :-).

Try it and send a bug-report :)
Sure :-). I'm going to test it on 2.6.37 with gcc 4.6.3.

While 2.6.37 may work, patches/bug reports will obviously handled on a
case-by-case basis depending on how invasive or complex they are.  If
