Perhaps you should take a look at /usr/src/linux/README, where it says:

COMPILING the kernel:

 - Make sure you have gcc-2.91.66 (egcs-1.1.2) available.  gcc 2.95.2 may
   also work but is not as safe, and *gcc is no longer supported*.
   Also remember to upgrade your binutils package (for as/ld/nm and company)
   if necessary. For more information, refer to ./Documentation/Changes.

Or take a look on LKML. There is no chance to use 2.97 for kernel
compiling, as kernel relies on certain "bugs" 2.91.66 has, as they are
used for optmising. I'm using 2.95.2 and have loads of working kernels,
but on some configurations it breaks some __init thingies.

Mind telling me, which switches you used on glibc-2.2 and which packages
had to be patched?
