Help!! Compilation error using EXPORT_SYMBOL in fedora Core4


I have Fedora Core4 (Linux V 2.6.11-1.1369; GCC - 4.0.0).
I have a kernel module in which I use EXPORT_SYMBOL macro to export the symbols to the other kernel modules.

But when I compile the kernel module it throws out segmentation fault.

Please find the scree shot below.

Please let me know what would be the issue as its very critical to fix this bug now.


Example of code:
int register_notifier(struct notifier_block *nb)
return notifier_chain_register(&cli_notifier, nb);

Screen -dump:
