SubjectRe: anyone compiled 2.2.17 on RH7 successfully?
Corisen,

RedHat 7.0's version of gcc, known as gcc 2.96, is incompatible with the
kernel's code. Preprocessor changes cause the problem you encountered. It
also has some defects in how it optimizes code that would cause the kernel
to run incorrectly.

The 7.0 distribution includes an older version of gcc, known as kgcc (for
kernel gcc), that compiles code correctly and can be used for kernel
compilation. Install the rpm and go for it!
