Subject: Any problems with 2.4 and gcc 3.2?

I'm going to be installing RH8 soon, and would like to know if gcc 3.2
miscompiles 2.4 kernel code (i.e. 2.4.20-pre8, for example). Are there any
problems with the code that gcc 3.2 produces from kernel source?

Brad

I have a system that's been running 2.4.20-preX compiled with GCC 3.2
for over a month now, no problems so far.

3.2 seems to work very well. I had problems with trident.c compile
errors in some 3.2 variants but that is all. 3.1.x seems mostly ok too,
3.0 is right out
