OK, so that is not the problem...

No, I have places in my kernel where atomic_dec_and_lock is used. In
fact, one of the functions I was pasted where it broke was mmput() in
kernel.S (i think from fork.c). I have that function, and it uses
atomic_dec_and_lock...

So the problem is most certainly something to do with your configuration
not getting the dependency right to use atomic_dec_and_lock

Out of curiosity, what CONFIG CPU are you defined to use?

I am working, but it is not my code. I am merely trying to keep it in
sync with the trees. I am trying to get it working for those who it
does not compile for, but it works for me and others, so it is hard.
