    Well that bit compiles.

    This thing's running RHAS2.1 which I think dates from before the invention
    of the transistor. Running home-made gcc-3.3.2 and binutils-

    I'll send along the three elf.h's under /usr/include.

    Dunno yet - I didn't do the normal batch of cross-compiles due to spending
    six hours chasing down new bugs.

    That fixes the modpost.c compile, but the new futex stuff fails because
    ia64 doesn't implement ptr_to_compat(). In fact only three architectures
    appear to do so.
