  1. Reg: Warning while building native kernel 2.6.22.8

    Hi,
    I am compiling my native kernel 2.6.22.8 ,Though it build
    successfully ,but with following warnings:


    ************************************************** **************************************

    My query is that are these normal warning ? If not then how to avoid
    them.
    Also how can they affect my development work on 2.6.22.8 kernel.

    PS: The same warnings are also being reported when I compile my
    external module using the above built kernel.
