when i compiled latest linux 2.6.4 kernel source with gcc 3.3.2 on

where the range of the variable is so that the expression is always
The explicit comparison has to do with the code for high-uid and gid sheme.

attached you will find a diff which does eliminate this error message
by introducing an inline function that wont result in the message but
it will result in compareable dense binary code with normal optimisations.
