Re: 2.1.11: a few compilation warnings

I think it would actually be bad to "test compile everything" before
making releases. When I see a new kernel give a lot of warnings or errors,
I know that code has never been executed, and I treat it with much more
caution. But if the code got run through some "test compile everything"
facility and the warnings cosmetically fixed up, I would not know that
the code has never been executed.
