I cannot compile kernel 2.6.38. Apparently, there is a build failure
with the e1000e module (ethernet driver). The brief error message is this:

ERROR: "crc32_le" [drivers/net/e1000e/e1000e.ko] undefined!
make[1]: *** [__modpost] Error 1
make: *** [modules] Error 2

My compiler is gcc-4.5.2 on a Gentoo x64 system. The kernel source
is the stock source from kernel.org.
