SubjectRe: Compiling 2.4.1-preX series
Fair enough, but something in bugs.h changed from 2.4.0 to 2.4.1-preX and
broke my GCC, I shall recompile GCC with no PGCC patches however if this
happens still then there's a problem somewhere.

I dont know what FXSR is but there was no problem in 2.4.0 with this.

diff include/asm-i386/bugs.h ../linux/include/asm-i386/bugs.h |
> #if defined(CONFIG_X86_FXSR) || defined(CONFIG_X86_RUNTIME_FXSR)
< if (offsetof(struct task_struct, thread.i387.fxsave) & 15) {
< extern void __buggy_fxsr_alignment(void);
< __buggy_fxsr_alignment();
< }
> if (offsetof(struct task_struct, thread.i387.fxsave) & 15)
> panic("Kernel compiled for PII/PIII+ with FXSR, data not 16-byte
