This gets xfs past build problems with some versions of gcc, specifically
redhat versions. The kernel also boots and runs when built with the
compiler from redhat 7.1.

NOTE IF YOU ARE USING REDHAT 7.0 THEN WE RECOMMEND YOU STILL USE kgcc AS
THE COMPILER, YOUR SYSTEM MAY WELL HANG IF YOU DO NOT.

Success/failure reports greatfully accepted.

p.s. also changes the extraversion from -XFS to -xfs for debian packaging
issues.

        - Fall back to just defining CC as gcc, but provide some 
          commentary on other compilers you might want to use.

linux/fs/xfs/linux/xfs_linux.h - 1.48
        - For ia32 based systems, fold the contents of the do_div macro into the
          xfs code and clean it up some - this gets us past build errors from 
various
          compiler versions.
