    The patch didn't help.

    davem recently merged a patch which adds ext3 ioctls to fs/compat_ioctl.c.
    That required inclusion of ext3 and jbd header files. Those files explode
    unpleasantly when CONFIG_JBD=n.

    No trivial fix was apparent - perhaps we should disable the compat wrappers
    if CONFIG_EXT3=n and/or CONFIG_JBD=n.

    Most people use ext3.
