    Funny, I can't find that warning ;) However, I can find this:

    Note that the latest compilers (egcs, pgcc, gcc 2.8) may do Bad Things
    while compiling your kernel, particularly if absurd optimizations (like
    -O9) are used. Caveat emptor. Currently, the only

    This is obviously very old (both egcs and gcc-2.8 are no longer the
    "latest" versions). Now that many problems were resolved and the kernel
    (at least 2.3) auto-detects wether (p)gcc-2.95 is used, is this warning
    still valid?

    In effect this warning says: "use gcc-2.7.2 or do not complain".
