gcc4 compile fixes

Howdy all.  I'm trying to bring up gcc-4.0 toolchains
using the headers from linux-, and as a sanity
check, I'm trying to build ppc750 and ppc970 kernels, too.

I'm finding things here and there that need patching to let
the build finish.  For instance:

In file included from include/asm/setup.h:8,
                  from include/asm/machdep.h:8,
                  from include/asm/irq.h:6,
                  from include/asm/hardirq.h:8,
                  from include/linux/hardirq.h:6,
                  from include/asm-generic/local.h:6,
                  from include/asm/local.h:4,
                  from include/linux/module.h:21,
                  from init/main.c:16:
include/asm-m68k/setup.h:365: error: array type has incomplete element type

(This pops up because asm-ppc/setup.h just includes asm-m68k/setup.h.)

That's a garden-variety 'used before defined' problem, fixed thus:

Ditto for the next one:

If somebody else has already fixed all of these, I'd rather
just use their sources.   So... shall I keep on patching
and posting, or are these already fixed somewhere?
