kernel compiles broken


I've had a few problems trying to build a fresh 2.6.10 or 2.6.11
kernel. Nothing fancy. With gcc-4.0 I get tons of warnings, and
eventually it barfs when it gets to:
>  CC      drivers/eisa/eisa-bus.o
>cc1: warnings being treated as errors
>drivers/eisa/eisa-bus.c:421: warning: pointer targets in
initialization differ in signedness

I tried gcc-3.3 and gcc-3.4 instead, but those, in any event, fail with:
>  CC      arch/i386/kernel/process.o
>{standard input}: Assembler messages:
>{standard input}:712: Error: suffix or operands invalid for `mov'

This thread:
says to apply a kernel patch or downgrade binutils. Doing so might
work, but still seems worth correcting. Anyway, i'd guess there's
something wrong with the 2.16.1cvs20050902-1 package.

Any thoughts?
