    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.
