SubjectPATCH: gcc3.0.2 workaround for 8139too

after 2.4.10 i've detected that using gcc 3.0.2 to compile the kernel
always fails with the 8139too realtek networkcard driver. errormessage
reports a bug in the compiler itself. 2.4.11-2.4.14 are affected by it
too. that's also the only file affected by this. i have investigated
into stuff and realized that there seems to be a little borkage with
understanding of strcpy. i can't tell how, why and what. i went to and talked there with some people a while back, also
offered a 'temporarely solution' to get things compiled and operate
again (worksforme TM) and saw that a bunch of other people wanted to get
it working again in any circumstances.

so please allow me to post this 'temporarely workaround' here so other
people can profit of it until things with the gcc3.0.2 compiler are

thank you.
