Unfortunately, this "v2" patch still breaks with gcc-4.6 here:

LD .tmp_vmlinux1
mm/built-in.o: In function `calc_period_shift.part.10':
page-writeback.c:(.text+0x6458): undefined reference to `____ilog2_NaN'
make[4]: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1
My patchset against next-20110415 looks like this:

(+) OK writeback-dirty-throttling-v7/writeback-dirty-throttling-v7.patch
(+) OK writeback-dirty-throttling-post-v7/0001-writeback-i386-compile-fix.patch
(+) OK writeback-dirty-throttling-post-v7/0002-writeback-quick-CONFIG_BLK_DEV_THROTTLING-n-compile-.patch
(+) OK writeback-dirty-throttling-post-v7/0003-Revert-writeback-scale-dirty-proportions-period-with.patch
(+) OK writeback-dirty-throttling-v7-fix/writeback-scale-dirty-proportions-period-with-writeout-bandwidth-v2.patch

Attached are the disasm of mm/page-writeback.o (v2, gcc-4.6) and the
disasm of yesterday's experiments with gcc-4.5.
