 It was mentioned on IRC that this commit could possibly help here:

 Subject: [PATCH] ARM: Fix undefined instruction exception handling

 I backported this to arm-3.0-wip, which actually required some more
 commits too. Overall:
  ARM: Fix undefined instruction exception handling
  ARM: 7031/1: entry: Fix Thumb-2 undef handling for multi-CPU kernels
  ARM: 7030/1: entry: Remove unnecessary masking when decoding Thumb-2
  ARM: entry: rejig register allocation in exception entry handlers
  ARM: entry: prefetch/data abort helpers: convert to macros

 Then I tested it on my XO-1.75 SHC20500127 (SKU203) and found that the
 compiler was just as crashy as before :(

 Interestingly I think this failure may be limited to certain machines
 only, as today I built llvm and gtk3 on another XO-1.75 SHC20600104
 (SKU204) and succeeded.
