Kernel 3.22 error when compiling

I got this error with the kernel3.24.

Yeah.. it's a mystery: the compiler sometimes generates a couple of words longer code than at other time, probably due to a side effect of a semirandom seed in register allocator, which sometimes leads to an extra spill. I thought I had it safe in transient_i, but I guess I didn't.

The size of transient_i segment is fixed to the accuracy of one word to make it impossible for the vslink linker to accidentally put a function into transient_i which would be needed after boot-up time. The solution is to add a few words more to the length of transient_i in the memory description file (mem_desc_kernel03.mem).

Sorry about this, we are looking for more elegant ways to fix this known problem.

The problem is still there with kernel 3.54 and VSIDE 2.43
