    Subject2.1.113 fault.c:105: `local_bh_count' undeclared
    	Ok...  I just unpacked 2.1.113 and got burned.

    I copied over my working .config from 2.1.111 to 2.1.113 and
    ran through the configuration, just to double check everything. I then
    ran "make dep ; make clean ; make bzImage". It bombed in the i386/mm
    area with the following errors:

    ] gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/u/src/linux-2.1.113/include -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe -fno-strength-reduce -m486 -malign-loops=2 -malign-jumps=2 -malign-functions=2 -DCPU=686 -c -o fault.o fault.c
    ] fault.c: In function `do_page_fault':
    ] fault.c:105: `local_bh_count' undeclared (first use this function)
    ] fault.c:105: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
    ] fault.c:105: for each function it appears in.)
    ] make[2]: *** [fault.o] Error 1
    ] make[2]: Leaving directory `/u/src/linux-2.1.113/arch/i386/mm'
    ] make[1]: *** [first_rule] Error 2
    ] make[1]: Leaving directory `/u/src/linux-2.1.113/arch/i386/mm'
    ] make: *** [linuxsubdirs] Error 2

    Line 105 in arch/i386/mm/fault.c is here:

    104] mm = tsk->mm;
    105] if (in_interrupt())
    106] die("page fault from irq handler",regs,error_code);

    This appears to originate in include/asm-i386/hardirq.h with the
    macro in_interrupt():

    #define in_interrupt() ({ int __cpu = smp_processor_id(); \
    (local_irq_count[__cpu] + local_bh_count[__cpu] != 0); })

    It looks like local_bh_count is missing.

    Here is the same macro from 2.1.111:

    #define in_interrupt() (local_irq_count[smp_processor_id()] + local_bh_count[smp_processor_id()] != 0)

    Ok... The local_bh_count array is still there, but was indexed
    directly by the smp_processor_id function. Looks like a fix for some
    sort of timing window between the two calls to smp_processor_id().

    Where did local_bh_count disappear to?

    Build information:

    x86 Pentium Pro, Uniprocessor. RedHat 4.1 installation.

    Thoughts on what to do about this animal?
