Hmm, I think it's caused by 47788c58e66c050982241d9a05eb690daceb05a9.

The commit message looks rather interesting, including:

arch/ia64/ia32/ia32priv.h:290:1: warning: "elf_check_arch" redefined
arch/ia64/include/asm/elf.h:19:1: warning: this is the location of the previous definition

surely the right answer is to only have _one_ definition of this thing,
rather than two which may be different? IOW, how do you know for certain
which definition gets used where.

Not sure that I totally agree with the rationale in this commit, but I
guess we have to live with it because it's x86.

Now, others have been putting out patches to solve the ARM build problem
caused by the above commit, including one which includes linux/slab.h
instead of linux/mm.h. That seems to be a better fix than needlessly
including lots of other stuff via linux/mm.h. I notice that akpm picked
up the linux/slab.h version yesterday.
