    Subjectlinux-next: build failure after merge of the vfs tree
    Hi Al,

    After merging the vfs tree, today's linux-next build (powerpc
    ppc64_defconfig) failed like this:

    In file included from include/linux/tracehook.h:51:0,
    from arch/powerpc/kernel/ptrace.c:25:
    include/linux/security.h: In function 'securityfs_create_dir':
    include/linux/security.h:3003:2: error: implicit declaration of function 'ERR_PTR' [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]
    include/linux/security.h:3003:2: error: return makes pointer from integer without a cast [-Werror]
    include/linux/security.h: In function 'securityfs_create_file':
    include/linux/security.h:3012:2: error: return makes pointer from integer without a cast [-Werror]
    In file included from include/linux/fs.h:2283:0,
    from include/linux/trace_seq.h:4,
    from include/linux/ftrace_event.h:5,
    from include/trace/syscall.h:6,
    from arch/powerpc/kernel/ptrace.c:32:
    include/linux/err.h: At top level:
    include/linux/err.h:22:35: error: conflicting types for 'ERR_PTR'
    include/linux/security.h:3003:9: note: previous implicit declaration of 'ERR_PTR' was here

    And many more similar.

    Probably caused by commit 3073cb2e813c ("trim security.h") which
    presumably removed an include file that was including err.h :-(

    I have used the vfs tree from next-20111216 for today.
