So it seems to me the following patch would be the right one: [akpm@osdl.org: compile fix] Signed-off-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Cc: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com> Acked-by: NeilBrown <neilb@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
