    This hunk is in the CONFIG_PM=n case.

    Of the several hundred x86_64 and i386 kernels I build
    before sending you a pull request, only two do not have CONFIG_PM=y --
    x86_64 allnoconfig and i386 allnoconfig.
    Like the other kernels, those build fine.

    I'm curious what config and compiler tripped on this for you.

    Yes, I did check in Ying's patch this week, and a few others.

    But a bunch of the patches have been in linux-next for some time.

    I know you'd prefer patches to live in the tree frozen at the
    date that they were 1st checked in, but that doesn't work well
    when patches change. To update a patch in a series I need to re-base.
    Yes, I could re-base in place -- in the context of an rc
    that nobody anywhere (including me) will ever build or boot.
    Or I could re-base up to the latest release boundary which
    a lot of people (including me) will test. In this case
    I think I re-based everything up to 3.4.

    It would be sad for a simple, though embarrassing,
    issue with this patch to delay the other patches.
