Well we do have it in our plans but given this is more a nice feature
than something critical (as currently used approach with libgcc works
perfectly fine) it might not be done very soon.

Thus we'll need to keep this work-around for now.

BTW exporting of libgcc parts into kernel means we'll need to
keep it in sync with real libgcc later which is not optimal as well.
