Yes, but I'd like to keep this separate from Georgi's current work on
updating gcc in Owl.  Even if the RHEL6/OpenVZ kernel doesn't build with
the new gcc right away, that is not a blocker for committing the gcc
update into Owl, which needs to be done first anyway.

(BTW, it's time for the second weekly reports.)

Thanks,
