Mr Wanderlof,
You are absolutely right.  I did find the patch just as you stated.  I
downloaded the patch and to my surprise my code already had the patch in
it.  I did see along with the patch that I am to cd mtd-utils/ and then
make WITHOUT_XATTR=1.  This works great however, when I cd into
uClinux-dist/ and run make, WITHOUT_XATTR=1 never gets passed to the
makefile in the mtd-utils directory. 
1. Do I need to change something in the uClinux-dist/user/Makefile so
that it will pass WITHOUT_XATTR=1 to the mtd-utils/makefile?

2. Do I need to add something to a config file under the vendors directory?

Thank you,
Glen Johnson
