I'm compiling custom kernel and during the process I'm getting warnings such as:

drivers/isdn/hardware/eicon/message.c:6115:1: warning: the frame size of 1184 bytes is larger than 1024 bytes [-Wframe-larger-than=]

The part

warning: the frame size of XXXX bytes is larger than 1024 bytes [-Wframe-larger-than=]

are always the same.

I'm find out that it is some compiler-enforced limit for the architecture upon which I'm building.

Should I be worried? If so, anyone have idea how to resolve this?

I'm on Ubuntu 14.04 64bit.

  • You are almost always safe ignoring warnings. – Panther Sep 7 '14 at 1:22
  • Is this means that some parts are not successfully compiled? – mixerowsky Sep 7 '14 at 1:26
  • No , they are warnings not errors. You can report them upstream to kernel.org. – Panther Sep 7 '14 at 2:44
