[2.3.99pre7-2] compile error in ipmr.c

From: Frank Bernard (fb@fbit.de)
Date: Wed May 03 2000 - 00:00:04 EST

make[3]: Entering directory `/usr/firewall/src/frei/kernel/linux/net/ipv4'
gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/firewall/src/frei/kernel/linux/include -Wall
-Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe
-march=i586 -c -o ipmr.o ipmr.c
ipmr.c: In function `ipmr_reg_vif':
ipmr.c:200: incompatible types in assignment
make[3]: *** [ipmr.o] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/firewall/src/frei/kernel/linux/net/ipv4'
The offending line is

dev->name = (char *)dev->priv + sizeof(struct net_device_stats);

But name is defines in netdevice.h as name[FIXED_CONSTANT], so no pointer
can be assigned. No idea what to do.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / kind regards
