Bug#334348: kernel-kbuild-2.6-3: Warning for mismatched gcc versions suggested
kernel-kbuild is used for building modem drivers and others.
But a properly compiled module will under 2.6.n fail to load if the
gcc versions of driver and host kernel are not adequately matched.
Perhaps put a warning in kernel-kbuild like:
The Major.Minor versions differ in the designated compiler $GCC and the
$GCC_PC used in kernel assembly!!"
But there must be a match on the target for driver installation,
of gcc Major.Minor versions of kernel and drivers!!
Otherwise the drivers will fail to load with warning:
Invalid module format!!"
