pcnet32.c: PCI posting bug prevents 2.4.3-ac14 compilation

This one is new - 2.4.3-ac12 built without problems.

make[3]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.3-ac14/drivers/net'
gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux-2.4.3-ac14/include -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe -m
preferred-stack-boundary=2 -march=i686 -c -o pcnet32.o pcnet32.c
pcnet32.c:1385: warning: #warning "PCI posting bug"
pcnet32.c:327: pcnet32_pci_tbl causes a section type conflict
make[3]: *** [pcnet32.o] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.3-ac14/drivers/net'

I must confess, that the meaning of the warning isn't clear to me, but
that's a warning. The session-type conflict is even more vague. Reading
the patch I don't see any obvious hints.

I'm using

Reading specs from /usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/2.95.3/specs
gcc version 2.95.3 20010315 (release)

on a SuSE 7.1 base system.



If something was not wrong things would not be right.
