A BK pull from this afternoon resulted in several updates to the
fs/proc/base.c file, and my '-12' GCC package compiled the file without
difficulty. I'm now running 2.6.12-rc1+ on the SS20. I suppose the version
of the file from several days ago tickled a bug in the compiler that the
current file avoids.
Would it be advisable to move to the GCC-3.4 for the standard system
compiler? In particular, does this version compile kernels successfully?
