Build problem with drivers/net/au1000_eth.c

I'm using latest linux-mips CVS kernel (2.6.10rc3) and GCC 3.4.2 on a
AMD Alchemy DBau1100 development board (mipsel/MIPS32).  I wasn't able
to find any other location to post bugs, so please let me know if there
is a bug system or more appropriate place to post this.  The kernel
build dies with:

  CC      drivers/net/au1000_eth.o
drivers/net/au1000_eth.c: In function `au1000_init_module':
drivers/net/au1000_eth.c:100: sorry, unimplemented: inlining failed in
call to 'str2eaddr': function body not available
drivers/net/au1000_eth.c:1506: sorry, unimplemented: called from here
drivers/net/au1000_eth.c: At top level:
drivers/net/au1000_eth.c:152: warning: 'phy_link' defined but not used
make[2]: *** [drivers/net/au1000_eth.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [drivers/net] Error 2
make: *** [drivers] Error 2

I was able to get things to build with the following patch, although I'm
sure this is not the proper way to do things:
$ cvs diff drivers/net/au1000_eth.c

Index: drivers/net/au1000_eth.c
RCS file: /home/cvs/linux/drivers/net/au1000_eth.c,v
retrieving revision 1.39
diff -r1.39 au1000_eth.c
< extern inline void str2eaddr(unsigned char *ea, unsigned char *str);
> extern void str2eaddr(unsigned char *ea, unsigned char *str);

I'm noticing another problem now though (a kernel oops), which could be
related to my little patch above.  I changed the definition of str2eaddr
in arch/mips/au1000/common/prom.c to also not be inline just to make
sure they matched.  I now get this oops which seems to appear/disappear
after enabling/disabling kernel options (although I have not been able
to trace it down to one particular feature).  This leads me to believe
it is some sort of alignment bug, which is what the exception refers to.
I have yet been able to build a ksymoops that will work properly, but
I'm still working on that.  If any one has any tips on how I can resolve
this issue I could use the help.  Raw oops output (not ksymoops yet) is

Best regards,
        Josh Green
