Thank you very much.
This solves the interesting (to me) problem I had of not being able to
recreate the kernel from source and config file.  As I needed also to compile
up the newer version of the aic7xxx driver to control the raid array drbd is

'tis a lovely habit RH has of setting the default gcc to something that can't
