You should compile with the same version as the kernel was compiled. If
3.3 is still on your system (should so) you can check the gcc link in
/usr/bin. it likely will be linked to gcc-4. I usually change that (and
others) link to the gcc i need manually since i work with distcc. 

I'm quite sure it will work with update-alternatives or some other 
method easier. It will be somewhere in the docs.

Maybe 3.4 will work too, but i'm not sure about this.
