I get these warnings when I compile the latest kernel. A few of them I know how to fix but what should I do with them I dont know how to fix? is it important not to get any warnings when compiling a kernel?

Though the kernel is not SUPPOSED to spit out warnings, it can. Warnings are generally ok, unless you see bugs/crashes after booting the kernel. Some odd behaviors used in optimization can generate warnings, in fact.
