    Hi Michal,

    There is something wrong with the patch,
    I can't compile 2.6.38 neither linux-next on sparc64:

    $ make CROSS_COMPILE=sparc64-unknown-linux-gnu-
    CHK include/linux/version.h
    CHK include/generated/utsrelease.h
    UPD include/generated/utsrelease.h
    CC kernel/bounds.s
    GEN include/generated/bounds.h
    CC arch/sparc/kernel/asm-offsets.s
    GEN include/generated/asm-offsets.h
    CALL scripts/
    CC scripts/mod/empty.o
    MKELF scripts/mod/elfconfig.h
    HOSTCC scripts/mod/file2alias.o
    HOSTCC scripts/mod/modpost.o
    HOSTCC scripts/mod/sumversion.o
    HOSTLD scripts/mod/modpost
    scripts/mod/sumversion.o: Relocations in generic ELF (EM: 3)
    scripts/mod/sumversion.o: could not read symbols: File in wrong format
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

    $ file scripts/mod/sumversion.o
    scripts/mod/sumversion.o: ELF 32-bit LSB relocatable, Intel 80386,
    version 1 (SYSV), not stripped

    Why 386?

    gcc both sparc and sparc64 are 4.5.2, ld/binutils is 2.21
