From Bugzilla Helper:

Description of problem:
Compiling custom kernel.  Configuration file is attached below.  
'drivers/block/loop.c' fails with bizarre error that may be a compiler 
problem:

/usr/src/linux-2.4.22-1.2149.nptl/include/asm/processor.h:60: field 
`loops_per_jiffy_R_ver_str' declared as a function

Referenced line appears thus in gcc32 -E output:

   unsigned long loops_per_jiffy_R_ver_str(ba497f13);

Original looks like this:

   unsigned long loops_per_jiffy;

Can't find any #define macros that come close to causing this.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-source-2.4.22-1.2149.nptl, gcc32-3.2.3-6, gcc-3.3.2-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
cd /usr/src/linux-2.4.22-1.2149.nptl
make config
make dep
make bzImage
make modules

Forgot:

Same thing happens with original Fedora base images from 11/2003 and 
with system patched to latest version.

I just successfully downloaded and custom-built kernel
2.6.1 from kernel.org.  Just had to remove kudzu from
the rc starups and it works great.

Don't care about this bug anymore.
