There is an updated compiler from redhat, they released an update and
there is an even more recent one in rawhide. I regularly compile with
these and do nfs exports - it has been a long time since I used the
original 7.1 gcc though, and I cannot say I ever compiled that
particular code combination with that compiler. The fact that different
build architectures exhibit different compiler issues does not help
either. For the record I am running the cvs kernel compiled with
gcc-2.96-88 on a dual processor i686 kernel. I have nfs exports from
this box. Oh, another variable is if you build in kdb and tell it to
put frame pointers in the kernel, this chews up more registers and
changes the code quite a bit, I do not use the frame pointer option.
