[meta-freescale] ARM gcc 4.8.2 and kernel builds

I have been trying out kernel 3.18-rc4. I couldn't build it with the 
meta-freescale daisy SDK (which has gcc 4.8.2), because the kernel has 
blacklisted ARM gcc 4.8.0 through 4.8.2. The error message given says 
that it's because of a compiler bug which might lead to corrupted 

Could this gcc bug also affect earlier kernels (either 2.6.35 in 
linux-imx, or 3.14 in linux-fslc), so is it worth updating gcc to 4.8.3 
in meta-freescale daisy?
