Subject[patch 08/19] UML - Fix kernel vs libc symbols clash
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

From: Jeff Dike <>

commit 818f6ef407b448cef63294b9d0f6f8a2af9cb817 in mainline.

uml: fix an IPV6 libc vs kernel symbol clash

On some systems, with IPV6 configured, there is a clash between the kernel's
in6addr_any and the one in libc.

This is handled in the usual (gross) way of defining the kernel symbol out of
the way on the gcc command line.
