Having just written to the list that I had no problem compiling time.c in
kernel 2.0.25 with gcc 2.7.2 I returned to my compile to find ....

gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux-2.0.25/include -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes
-O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -fno-strength-reduce -pipe -m486 -DCPU=486 -c -o
time.o time.c
{standard input}: Assembler messages:
{standard input}:768: Error: no such 386 instruction: `rdmsr'

make[1]: *** [time.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory /usr/src/linux-2.0.25/arch/i386/kernel'
