when i switched to linux 2.6.11 version of include/linux/etherdevice.h the compiler no longer ice'd.

i upgraded to rawhide gcc4 to see if fixed, but no.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. download ipw2100-1.1.0.tgz
2. compile against linux headers
3. boom!

Comment 3 Pål Brattberg 2005-07-06 16:02:11 UTC
I get this error as well, with 2.6.12-1.1387_FC4 and gcc (GCC) 4.0.0 20050519
(Red Hat 4.0.0-8). I have contacted the author of ipw2100 as well.

Comment 4 darkness 2005-07-07 16:32:30 UTC
FYI, applying the patch from
(ipw2100 Bugzilla) makes this compiler error go away for me (FC4,
kernel-2.6.12-1.1387_FC4, gcc-4.0.0-8).  Of course, I think the compiler crash
is still a bug, but this may be a workaround to get ipw2100 compiled.  I haven't
actually tested the resulting driver yet.

Comment 5 Jakub Jelinek 2005-07-12 13:39:42 UTC
Well, that patch is not a workaround, but fix, the source is otherwise not valid
C.  The ICE is tracked upstream.

Comment 6 Jakub Jelinek 2005-07-15 11:45:48 UTC
gcc-4.0.1-3 in rawhide properly issues an error about this bug.
