I get the following failure before I get to link time:

In file included from
from include/linux/irq.h:357,
from include/linux/hardirq.h:7,
from include/linux/interrupt.h:12,
from net/core/pktgen.c:135:
In function ‘copy_from_user’,
inlined from ‘pktgen_if_write’ at net/core/pktgen.c:877:20:
error: call to ‘copy_from_user_overflow’ declared with attribute
error: copy_from_user() buffer size is not provably correct
make[2]: *** [net/core/pktgen.o] Error 1


gcc (GCC) 4.6.2 20120120 (prerelease)

Is that my fault, or something else?
