Parent article: GCC 4.3.0 exposes a kernel bug
Under ordinary circumstances, the GCC developers would plan an x.y.1 release to occur about two months after an x.y.0 release, for any values of x and y, as a bug-fix-only release. The only real question is whether issues like this one might lead to putting out 4.3.1 sooner.
In any case, this bug has generated far more discussion than any number of other bugs that have more impact. Unless you have a program that invokes an x86 string move instruction from inside a signal handler, the issue isn't going to affect your program.
