SubjectRe: Recommended compiler? - Re: [patch] kernel/module.c (plus gratuitous rant)

* 2.91.66 aka egcs 1.1.2. It has been officially blessed for 2.4 and
has been given an informal thumbs-up by Alan for 2.2. (It does NOT
work for 2.0, if you still care about that.)

* works for 2.2 (and 2.0) but NOT for 2.4.

* 2.95.2 seems to work with both 2.2 and 2.4 (no known bugs, AFAIK) and
many of us use it, but it is a little riskier than egcs.

* Red Hat "2.96" or CVS 2.97 will probably break any known kernel.
