Fixed in 2.0.32. Looks like sys/types.h and socket.h were updated

Also, 2.1.65 compiles fine on my alpha. I'm receiving the following
messages, though:

/usr/src/linux-2.1.65/include/asm/io.h:46: warning: `__r16' might be used
uninitialized in this function

I thought this was a gcc problem, but I'm using Kernel problem
or gcc problem?
