Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2001-11-07 12:50:47 EST
This was fixed on 3.0 branch with
So next time I pack up gcc 3.0.x, it will be in.
It doesn't fail on gcc trunk.

Just as an FYI, this bug also prevents the Linux kernel module 8139too.c from
being able to be compiled.
Comment 3 Darren Tucker 2002-10-11 11:52:33 EDT
Retested with gcc-3.2 from RH8, worked fine.
