Also, I forgot to add that when switching gcc versions one really ought to rebuild the kernel and kernel modules in their entirety. The kernel does not like having portions of itself built with different compilers. I've seen this happen quite often with people who build external modules (such as nvidia-drivers), expecting to be able to use the modules with a kernel that was originally compiled with an older gcc version. It doesn't work. Although it's easily dealt with, the point is that there is no "automagic" way of taking care of all of this.
