    You seem to have forgotten the fact that linux also supports the Alpha
    platform. That's where I had the problem. The source was freshly untarred,
    with all patches applied, and then a make oldconfig dep clean boot modules
    so that wasn't the problem either. The fact that asm-alpha/irq.h didn't
    contain said disable_irq_nosync() was the problem, as pointed out to me by
    Ivan Kokshaysky. I of course made the mistake of not double checking the
    i386 tree for it, but that's a different matter.

    Thanks for your help,

    When I shop for hardware I always look for the "Designed for Windows 95" logo.
    I really thank Microsoft(TM) for encouraging manufacturers to label their
    products this way, so I know what to AVOID.
