This is about the kernel compile.
When I compiled the linux kernel source 220.127.116.11
with gcc 4.1 on Debian linux (kernel 2.6.26-2-686), there occured a large number of warnings.
include/asm/mpspec_def.h:78:warning: 'packed' attribute ignored for field of type 'unsigned char'
But when I compiled the linux kernel source 18.104.22.168
with gcc 4.1 on Debian linux (kernel 2.6.26-2-686), there occured just a few of warning.
(same configration, same environment)
What do the above error messages mean??
And why do the error messages occur only in the kernel source 22.214.171.124 ?
I would appreciate your answer.
