I can just imaging the error message we post:

"We refuse to build your kernel with the current version of your compiler. Linus has declared that this version of gcc violates SOPA (Stop Obnoxious Programming Acts). Although the gcc developers feel that this bug is a feature, we have proof that they are wrong."

Thanks for that comment, it was exactly what I needed to save my day. SOPA, LOL

Can't we just give a "Compiler On Acid" error?
