It's not all that confusing -- "index" is the name of a C library  
function that GCC presumably has a built-in implementation for (for  
literal strings constants, most likely).  The kernel doesn't generate  
this warning because it is built with options that tell the compiler  
"not in a hosted environment", which disables automatic expansion of  
certain functions into built-ins.

BTW, why not rename the variable to "idx" so you can avoid the StUdLy
