    SubjectRe: 2.6.5-mm2 (build error in arch/ia64/kernel/setup.c)
    I get a build error in arch/ia64/kernel/setup.c.

    This patch fixes it for SN2 machines, but I don't claim it is Correct.
    In fact, I think it is Wrong.

    There have been changes to setup_arch(), including, apparently, the
    elimination of the cmdline_p argument. Unforunately, that argument
    was not completely purged from the function.

    platform_setup on SN2 is #define'd to sn_setup, which still takes
    the argument, but does not use it. So this hack works. I don't
    know about the other IA64s.

    I'm not sure exactly what was intended with these changes, so I
    haven't attempted a Correct patch.
