Hi all,
I am trying to compile linux kernel version 2.4.19 and 2.4.20 for a MIPS
processor. GNU Compiler and linker version is 2.95.4.

Using compilation options:
mips-linux-gcc -D__KERNEL__ -D__linux__ -D_MIPS_SZLONG=32
-I/usr/emb_linux/linux-2.4.20/include -D__linux__ -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes
-Wno-trigraphs -O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common -fomit-frame-pointer -I
/usr/emb_linux/linux-2.4.20/include/asm/gcc -G 0 -mno-abicalls -fno-pic
-pipe -g -mcpu=r4600 -mips2 -Wa,--trap  -DUTS_MACHINE='"mips"'

I have got a tons of warnings named as:
{standard input}: Assembler messages:
{standard input}:784: Warning: Macro instruction expanded into multiple
{standard input}:784: Warning: No .cprestore pseudo-op used in PIC code

Can anybody help out to remove these warnings?

Using linking options:
mips-linux-ld -G 0 -static  -T arch/mips/ld.script

I have got a tons of error messages named as:
relocation truncated to fit: R_MIPS_PC16 cache_parity_error
relocation truncated to fit: R_MIPS_PC16 no symbol
relocation truncated to fit: R_MIPS_PC16 no symbol

I would be obliged if somebody can explain how GNU linker is taking
R_MIPS_PC16 as relocation type and what is the remedy to remove these error

Thanks and regds,
