I'm wondering if my strange problems are due to a badly built compiler 
and/or rtl.
I know for sure that my kernel (that I cannot upgrade at the moment) 
supports OABI and has EABI badly patched in (i.e, it doesn't work 100%), 
everything else should be OABI (debian arm, not armel).
To build 2.1.4 I used a binary snapshot of 2.1.3 
(ftp://ftp.freepascal.org/pub/fpc/beta/2.1.2/arm-linux/) and did not 
specify any special option while building, so, what convention is my 
compiler/rtl using? Is it possible that it's generating EABI and hitting 
sometimes the special cases that don't work in my kernel? In that case, 
how should I rebuild it in order to generate OABI code?
