It still fails with the above error.

If you look at your own file:

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/tj/percpu.git;a=blob;f=mm/percpu.c;h=b11ae7af3f7a214717d6670edb2985368efa8391;hb=for-james

on line 1456 pcpu_embed_first_chunk is defined with *three* arguments

on line 2006 it's used with *four* arguments

This is what the compiler doesn't like.

James
