This is exactly the problem. The fact that the values are the same is
causing the assembler interface to GCC to fail. When gcc -S outputs a
.s assembler file, the GNU as assembler errors out on 'duplicate label'.
Further, using the gcc -Wa,... without using -S, causes the compile to
fail when the assembler is invoked and gives the same errors.

I'm happy to upgrade...
What is the recommended level for kernel compiles and where can I find it.
I am required to work on 2.0.34C53_SK using Qube2 for my build platform
so I need compatibility. If I could cross compile on x86 that would be
