Ok, I ran into a build issue on the third on.

harley:/usr/src # cd linux-2.6-allstable
harley:/usr/src/linux-2.6-allstable # git bisect start

Bisecting: a merge base must be tested
[3fa8749e584b55f1180411ab1b51117190bac1e5] Linux 2.6.27

Build and test kernel: This one worked so:

harley:/usr/src/linux-2.6-allstable # git bisect good
Bisecting: 4879 revisions left to test after this (roughly 12 steps)

Build and test kernel: This one worked so:

harley:/usr/src/linux-2.6-allstable # git bisect good
Bisecting: 2443 revisions left to test after this (roughly 11 steps)
[db563fc2e80534f98c7f9121a6f7dfe41f177a79] Merge
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/sfrench/cifs-2.6

This one doesn't build:

CC [M] fs/ext3/super.o
fs/ext3/super.c: In function ‘ext3_quota_on’:
fs/ext3/super.c:2839: error: ‘nd’ undeclared (first use in this function)
fs/ext3/super.c:2839: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
fs/ext3/super.c:2839: error: for each function it appears in.)
make[2]: *** [fs/ext3/super.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [fs/ext3] Error 2
make: *** [fs] Error 2

I haven't yet determined that I can but, if I were to make a modification to the
tree now to fix this would that screw up the bisect process?

Regards
Mark
