OK, I read somewhere else that the Codesourcery toolchain is
recommended. (You have to register with Mentor to obtain it which is why
I initially chose the linaro toolchain). Anyway: I recompiled everthing
with arm-2013.05/arm-none-linux-gnueabi. This fixed the crash problem,
so the linaro toolchain is definitely broken!

Unfortunately, it *still* doesn't work. The last messages I see trying
to run the bootstrap_hello example are:

MOE: cmdline: moe --init=rom/hello
MOE: Starting: rom/hello
MOE: loading 'rom/hello'
L4Re: unhandled exception: pc=0xffffff9c

Any hints what could be wrong now?
