Ok, I'm pretty confused by this.  :)

The only difference I see between the "stock" kernel spec files for
17.7.x and 17.8.0 is:

-%define release 17.7.x
+%define release 17.8.0

(i.e. no gcc differences)

and the only differences between the 17.?.? Red Hat specfiles, and our
specfile, (aside from the release name) are the XFS patches.

I see "BuildRequires: gcc >= 2.96-98" in the 17.7.x specfiles as well,
but I only see gcc-2.96-85 for RH 7.1, so I don't know how you're
supposed to rebuild it on 7.1, or why you seem to be able to.

So I'm stumped.  :)
