It doesn't, as of now.

Yes. I have identified to the GCC bugzilla at least a few significant 
problems compiling the kernel 2.6.x with GCC 4.0; a couple are real deal 
breakers but wouldn't, necessarily, appear unless you were thoroughly 
testing all possible kernel options. I have managed to build a complete 
HLFS distro with GCC 4.0 (without SSP patches) including everything EXCEPT 
the kernel (where I resorted to using the latest GCC 3).

So my recommendation would be to wait until some of the bugs in the GCC 4 
series are worked out.
