Powerpc IRQ handling breaks strict EABI compliance

But __eabi() surprisingly has almost nothing to do with EABI itself. I.e., it
does a lot of things and only part of them are EABI-specific :-( I begin to
believe that always calling __eabi() is intentional decision of gcc
developers. However, please take a look at my separate post about the issue to
see why __eabi() is useless for RTEMS anyway.

I'm second on this. Or I was first, then you are second :)
