In file included from sound/drivers/mpu401/mpu401_uart.c:31:
arch/x86/include/asm/io.h:199: error: syntax error before 'pgprot_t'
arch/x86/include/asm/io.h:199: warning: function declaration isn't a prototype

because asm/io.h now needs asm/pgtable.h for pgprot_t.

I tried that:

and it blew up because pgtable.h needs spinlock.h for spinlock_t.
Gave up.
