Ok, thanks for the clear explanation.
>> 2) I see a couple of warnings during building of memtest module:
>> ld: warning: i386:x86-64 architecture of input file `random.o' is

>> 3) In memtset Makefile I had to comment out this line:
>> CCFLAGS += -fno-stack-protector
>> because gcc 3.4.6 does not recognize it. Is this safe?
> Yes, it is safe. The "no-stack-protector" flag is needed for some
> distributions that have different default compilation options. If your
> compiler doesn't support the flag, the flag is not needed.
