I sent this over the weekend to the list:
It appears that at least one of the include references in the CVS code
(mtd-snapshot-20020504) is not compatible with the 2.2.x kernel
I'm building the kernel from a directory in my /home. The kernel
running on the development system is 2.4.x. I unpacked a stock 2.2.17
kernel, patched it with mtd-2.2.17.patch, and then ran patchin.sh. I
I checked the links and found them proper and intact.
The first problem was that the spinlock types were defined twice
incompatibly. In compactmac.h, the inclusion of linux/spinlock.h at
line 362 pulls the file from /usr/include instead of the linux source
tree version. Changing this include to asm/spinlock.h eliminated the
problem, though I'm not confident that this is the right way to fix
Then, the pci.c driver in mtd/maps failed to build, but for a reason I
couldn't deduce. The compiler complains that the ioremap_noncache
symbol is missing.
What might I be missing? Is there another kernel patch?
What I'm doing is unpacking the CVS tree, using the patch and patchin
as I described and then building from the kernel source tree as I
normally would. This worked with the two year old version.
