Actually, the only problem is the a/i/k/ioport.c file. I'd be grateful if you
could include that one in 2.0.34.

AFAIK there are no other known problems with egcs and 2.0.3[34]; people
have been running kernels built with them for months now.

This minimal patch shouldn't be a problem for 2.0.34, right??!?!! ;-)
