What version of the compiler are you using? Try running 'gcc -v' or
'gcc --version' to get this info. These two command lines may print
out slightly different sets of data, so you may want to include both.

This is definitely a problem with gcc, although it may be triggered
by a problem in the kernel source. It is possible that you are using
an older version of gcc than other people.
