And guess what? This patch is now in Linus kernel. Greeeeaaaattttt
stuff whoever did that. Truely wonderful job.

Thanks for taking notice of me a month ago. I really appreciate it.
Especially when stuff gets merged which has already been pointed out
as needlessly _BREAKING_ stuff.

Linus - please revert the change which caused this.

CHK include/linux/compile.h
UPD include/linux/compile.h
CC init/version.o
LD init/built-in.o
LD .tmp_vmlinux1
arch/arm/kernel/built-in.o(.init.text+0x9d4): In function `$a':
: undefined reference to `rd_size'
make: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1
