Thanks for reporting this, is it OK if I add to a patch to fix this a
line saying "Reported-by: Janusz UÅycki <j.uzycki@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>"?

Whilst the extra '*' looks like an obvious typo, it's interesting that
your error message implies that it's allowed in some situations and that
the version of GCC that I use (4.9.1) doesn't complain about it.
If it's valid C, I've no idea what that syntax that might represent.
