    Hi Andrew,

    IA64 failed to build in kgdb with the messages

    arch/ia64/kernel/kgdb.c: In function 'kgdb_arch_set_breakpoint':
    arch/ia64/kernel/kgdb.c:555: warning: large integer implicitly truncated to unsigned type
    arch/ia64/kernel/kgdb.c: At top level:
    arch/ia64/kernel/kgdb.c:673: error: static declaration of 'kgdb_hwbreak_sstep' follows non-static declaration
    include/asm/kgdb.h:33: error: previous declaration of 'kgdb_hwbreak_sstep' was here
    make[1]: *** [arch/ia64/kernel/kgdb.o] Error 1
    make: *** [arch/ia64/kernel] Error 2
    make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....

    It's buried in git-kgdb.patch and I've cc'd who might be the owner. A candidate
    fix is below. The build error seems to be a simple case of a badly placed
    static. The warning about large integer truncating does not have an obvious
    fix and I didn't want to hide the warning with a real bug.
