gcc-4.4.1:

 HOSTCC  scripts/basic/fixdep
scripts/basic/fixdep.c: In function 'traps':
scripts/basic/fixdep.c:377: warning: dereferencing type-punned pointer will break strict-aliasing rules
scripts/basic/fixdep.c:379: warning: dereferencing type-punned pointer will break strict-aliasing rules

(Apparently -fno-strict-aliasing will fix this too)
