If you can work out the build failure in 2.6.1, it ought to
be incredibly easy to fix, can you try getting it to build
properly? Send me whatever error messages you get if you
get stumped, and if it's matter of simply turning off a
kernel config option that you don't need in order to avoid
trying to build the uncompilable code in 2.6.1 just do that
We really need to figure out when and where this got introduced.
I'm just stabbing in the dark otherwise. We can go back into
the 2.5.x kernels and do a binary search as well if necessary.
I'll try to help with that.
