I am trying to compile 2.1.112 on my Alpha UDB under Red Hat 5.1 which
uses egcs-1.0.2 (release 8 from RH, the latest). The compile fails in

gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux/include -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe -mno-fp-regs -ffixed-8 -c -o page_alloc.o page_alloc.c
page_alloc.c: In function `__free_page':
page_alloc.c:170: internal error--unrecognizable insn:
(jump_insn 300 292 301 (return) -1 (nil)
cpp: output pipe has been closed
gcc: Internal compiler error: program cc1 got fatal signal 6
{standard input}: Assembler messages:
{standard input}:177: Warning: Missing .end or .bend at end of file

It looks like it is failing in the assembly generation of
__builtin_return_value, but I don't know where that comes from. Is it
part of the compiler?

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
