Compiler warnings in gcc 4.3.2

I recently upgraded to intrepid, which has gcc 4.3.2. It gave a few
new warnings, and I've got patches ready for all but this one. I
started to write a patch to remove the check, since it's useless, but
wasn't sure if it should instead be converted to a signed integer

	if (section < 0 || section >= ns_s_max)
