Subject2.5.4 error building vmlinuz
Hi Folks:  I downloaded the 2.5.4 tar ball and applied a one line
patch by Dave ??? I don't remember his last name. Most of the kernel
compiled just fine until I got to the loader stage. I have tried the
compile a number of times removing newer features I had included from
the 2.5.4 configuration. It continually dies just after the ld
stage. Here's the log:

ld -m elf_i386 -T /usr/src/linux-2.5.4/arch/i386/ -e stext arch/i386/kernel/head.o arch/i386/kernel/init_task.o init/main.o init/version.o init/do_mounts.o \
--start-group \

drivers/net/net.o(.data+0x174): undefined reference to `local symbols in discarded section .text.exit'
make: *** [vmlinux] Error 1

Once again could someone help the clewless?
