SubjectCompilation problems in sysinfo.c
Hi all,

The Kernel level is: 2.4.9-31 for Red Hat Linux 7.2:

Has anyone had trouble compiling the modules - especifically in sysinfo.c.
I was trying to build the kernel modules and the compiler found errors when
it got to sysinfo.c.
I re-installed my kernel source code and headers and started from scratch.
I still had the same problem (see output below).

I changed line 11 to "include <compiler.h>", replaced line 86 with
Everything worked after that.

I'm wondering if I should report this as a bug or whether I was the only
one w/ the problem.
The source pkg that installed was kernel-source-2.4.9-31.i386.rpm, and
