Subject2.6.17-rc6-mm2, modpost segfaults
Hi all!

[please Cc]

When building an external modules (pwc) I always get segfaults of
/bin/sh: line 1: 6586 Segmentation fault (core dumped) scripts/mod/modpost -i /usr/src/linux-2.6.17-rc6-mm2/Module.symvers -I /src/kernel/pwc/pwc-10.0.12-rc1/Modules.symvers -o /src/kernel/pwc/pwc-10.0.12-rc1/Modules.symvers vmlinux /src/kernel/pwc/pwc-10.0.12-rc1/pwc.o
make[2]: *** [__modpost] Error 139

the gdb modpost core backtrace gives:

Do I do something wrong?

GREAT WAKERING (participial vb.)
Panic which sets in when you badly need to go to the lavatory and
cannot make up your mind about what book or magazine to take with you.
