Ouch. However, I think your patch is bogus.

You're fixing somethign that doesn't need fixing: <linux/uaccess.h>
already includes <linux/preempt.h> for the preemption functions.

The REAL problem seems to be that the m68k preempt.h (or rather, to be
exact, asm/thread_info.h) doesn't do things right, and while it exposes
"inc_preempt_count()", it doesn't expose enough information to actually
use it.

I think your "current_thread_info()" is broken.
