linux-2.2.x are strictly egcs-1.1.x or gcc-2.95.x at the latest. 2.96 won't
work, and it won't be fixed.

The idea is to have y optional, i.e. call:

SRC() --> 9999: ; ...

SRC(foo) --> 9999: foo ; ...

Maybe this can be fixed for 2.96, but it breaks badly elsewhere (doesn't
compile; kernel builds but hangs/crashes at boot; kernel appears to work
fine while it is busy eating your disk; ...)
