    Subject2.6.0 setup.S assembler messages
    I posted this a while ago but got no replies. When I compiled 2.6.0 today,
    the warning was still there, so I felt that a repost might be useful for
    someone.

    I thought it would be best to report this warning I get at the
    very end of the compiling-process. I'm no programmer or kernel-
    developer, so there is no way for me to tell of what significance
    this is.

    Anyway, I get this message even after a 'make mrproper', so I'm
    quite sure it's not a problem with old junk-files or something.
    When I look in setup.S at line 165, I find nothing but a reference
    to MAXMEM-1 or something like that, and it does seem odd that the
    value gets truncated into an identical value (unless the value was
    truncated before the message got printed, that is).

    ---------------------------------------
    AS arch/i386/boot/setup.o
    arch/i386/boot/setup.S: Assembler messages:
    arch/i386/boot/setup.S:165: Warning: value 0x37ffffff truncated to 0x37ffffff
    LD arch/i386/boot/setup
    ---------------------------------------

    I'm running i386-systems with the 2.6.0-kernel. I got the same
    message on two different computers, one AMD Athlon TBird, and one
    Intel Celeron.

    Is this a known problem, and is there a fix to this somehow?
