Default 1.0-9639 vs. 2.6.23-rc2: __you_cannot_kmalloc_that_much

I'm getting a 1.0-9639 build failure with my 2.6.23-rc2 kernel, even after applying all the patches submitted in other threads to date. Another user reported the same unresolved "__you_cannot_kmalloc_that_much" symbol error with the other legacy GPU driver.

Attached please find the 2.6.23-rc2 ".config" file (kconfig.txt), and the nvidia-installer.log file. Quick summary of things presumed relevant: using SLAB allocator, and gcc-3.4.6.

If anyone's got a quick fix, please post. Thanks!

Ok. I'll post my *own* quick fix, then :-). Upgrading my compiler to gcc-4.1.2 made the problem go away.

It looks like you can also avoid this problem by removing the '-O' from the EXTRA_CFLAGS in the Makefile.kbuild file.

Wouldn't be the first time an optimizer has bitten me :-(. Thanks for looking into this!
