They don't need to be because the thing is just a warning. The kernel has
plenty of warnings and this one is 100% harmless.

Im using CVS all the time. Im not sure what the #ident thing would be. But
then like everyone else I know I use $ident in comments. JJ will probably
be glad to work on that one

Right now I'm down to one known problem with 2.96 and 2.4.x kernels - which
is that CVS gcc and 2.96 accidentally changed the ABI and broke the bitfield
assumptions in DAC960.c/h. JJ I believe just committed patches for that one
