The gcc 3 series is more strict with enforcing standards than the 2
series was. If the kernel fails to compile, most of the time, it's a
kernel bug. The kernel contains many gcc-isms. The developers say
that even if it compiles under the latest gcc, it may not work

2.4.20 has those lines changed. My 2.4.20 was compiled with gcc
