That "bug" is there for a reason. Get a real compiler, then it will work OK.
Compile that kernel with your compiler, your fix in place, and then try to run
it on a PIII or later CPU and it will Oops all over the place. Run it on any
CPU that supports FXSAVE and it will likely blow chunks (all the Intel CPUs
will, but I don't know for sure about the AMD CPUs that support FXSAVE).
