User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; Q312461)

Description of problem:
When compiling the kernel I get a "segmentation fault" very early during 
compilation and it's the exact same place each time, namely during processing 
of line 1161 of kernel/module.c

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make bzImage
2. wait
3. error occurs

Actual Results:  The segementation I explaned above

Expected Results:  Successful compilation - I've compiled kernels many many 
times before

Additional info:

I've created a module.i file with error information. I just don't know where 
to submit it. (I just saw that attaching files is possible after submission - 
I will do this after submitting this report).

Please specify exact options you passed to gcc to reproduce this too.

The error occurs when compiling the kernel using the standard script (I simply 
typed "make bzImage"). When I produced the "module.i"-file, I copy & pasted 
the failing command line and added the "-save-temps" switch.
I'm starting to think that this is a problem with my system, because I get the 
same error when compiling the kernel in another linux distribution. But I 
wonder why the error occurs the exact same place everytime. I've tried 
memtest86 and it doesn't report an error.
A friend of mine says he has experienced this problem too but fixed it through 
BIOS tweaking. I will get back with more details as soon as I have them.
