    No, you misunderstood your very own kludge ;-) gcc-2.7.2.3 (at least) hates
    empty structure initializers anywhere. The ugly hack used pior to 2.1.114
    works by moving the empty initializer to the end of the structure, and then
    just leaving it out there. I just finished compiling a kernel with the
    patch I sent earlier, it boots fine. In fact, that's what I'm running right
    now.
