Are there many kernels still being built with 2.95.4? It's quite
antiquated, as far as
i'm aware.

The use of '__' violates compiler namespace. If 2.95.4 were not easily
replaced by
a much better version (3.3.x? 3.4.x) I would see a reason to disregard
this, but a fix
merely to satisfy an obsolete compiler?

In my humblest of opinions you are fixing a bug that is better solved
by downloading
a more recent version of gcc.
