Ok,maybe I should have been more explicit about what I meant.
Look here for example:

There you can find a discusson about a problem for threaded programs caused by  a recently made default optimization of gcc. This problem has been discussed on the lkml, because it affects the kernel too. This is a problem more centered on the optimization phase,but if the front-end doesn't care about certain compilation scenarios,maybe the rest of the compiler doesn't care too.So maybe my question hould have been : "Is cfe interested in supporting kernels compilation"?
