    Been trying to achieve that since it's a FAQ on ARM lists. Even gone to
    the extent of setting up a separate mailing list, getting a volunteer to
    track what people want and do the hard work to build them. That was
    about 6 months ago, and I haven't seen any results.

    I was thinking at the time "great, this is one problem which should be
    solved". How silly of me. It seems, yet again, that it comes down to
    a case of "if rmk doesn't do it, it won't get done." Sad but true.
    Now, why do I keep feeling that I'm being taken advantage of all the
    time? Could it be the complete lack of productive help from anyone else.

    Anyway, going back to why -mm doesn't work:

    arch/arm/kernel/built-in.o(.init.text+0xb64): In function `$a':
    : undefined reference to `rd_size'
    make[1]: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1

    So "rd_size" got deleted in -mm kernels without reference to anyone else
    who's using it. Greeeeaaatttt....
