I hope you did a "make oldconfig" before you compiled the kernel!

Although 2.6.12 can finally be compiled with gcc4 (FC4's default) I
doubt it is officially supported. Therefore you would better use "make
CC=gcc32 HOSTCC=gcc32" when compiling, this will also get you rid of the
warning messages.

I have seen the exactly same problem with kernel 2.6.11 when pam
changed /etc/pam.d/login to include pam_loginuid, I doubt this is
related to the 2.6.12 kernel
