I'm not sure if this problem appeared in earlier test-versions,
or if it's just a problem with my current system somehow, but
I thought it would be best to report this warning I get at the
very end of the compiling-process. I'm no programmer or kernel-
developer, so there is no way for me to tell of what significance
this is.

Anyway, I get this message even after a 'make mrproper', so I'm
quite sure it's not a problem with old junk-files or something.
When I look in setup.S at line 165, I find nothing but a reference
to MAXMEM-1 or something like that, and it does seem odd that the
value gets truncated into an identical value (unless the value was
truncated before the message got printed, that is).

arch/i386/boot/setup.S:165: Warning: value 0x37ffffff truncated to 0x37ffffff
  LD      arch/i386/boot/setup
---------------------------------------

I'm running i386-systems with the test11-kernel. I got the same
message on two different computers, one AMD Athlon TBird, and one
Intel Celeron.

Is this a known problem, and is there a fix to this somehow?
