Description of problem:after install kernel update 2.6.19-1.2895.fc6 (updating
from 2.6.18-1.2869.fc6) I tried to remake network drivers for realtek rtl8187l
usb wireless card.  I have compiled these drivers in the older kernel and they
compiled and worked.  Now on compile i get this error 

/r8187_core.c:2421: error: ‘struct net_device’ has no member named
when trying to compile the drivers

when trying to compile the drivers

That doesn't sound like a gcc bug, simply you downloaded some outdated kernel
module sources that is incompatible with recent changes in the kernel.
