[LinuxBIOS] help from ubuntu and FC6 experts

I would like to hear reports of building and running linuxbios on
ubuntu and FC6.

The background is that ubuntu and, perhaps, fc6, set some options on
the gcc pass that make no sense on a bios build. This is a guess. The
result is a non-working linuxbios on those machines. It is believed
the issue is some sort of stack protection flag that gets set.

So, if you have a working linuxbios, and an fc6 or ubuntu handy, I'd
like to hear about your success or failure in building and running

This has been seen on OLPC, but nowhere else; it may be related to
special needs of the OLPC.
