What version of 'gcc' are you running?

Current Theory:
The current version of gcc (2.9.*) is somehow broken with line

Removing the "\" and joining the lines is ugly, but should work around the
probelm.  Please send a report if this works.

Problem code:
#define netif_pause_tx_queue(dev) \
    (test_and_set_bit(0, (void*)&(dev)->tbusy))
#define netif_unpause_tx_queue(dev) \
    do { clear_bit(0, (void*)&(dev)->tbusy); } while (0)
#define netif_resume_tx_queue(dev) \
    do { clear_bit(0, (void*)&(dev)->tbusy); mark_bh(NET_BH); } while (0)
