Looking into the issue, anonymous unions are part of c11 standard so it
looks like gcc 4.4 is too old to support that. I have tested 4.4.5 which
definitelly lacks the support.

So I guess I will have to change the code so that the union has a name,
its not a big deal since we aren't touching the fields directly but only
in a few get/set functions.
