This is a poor changelog - it doesn't tell us how this compilation
error comes about. Is there some known build error in the mainline
kernel, or did you discover this when altering the kernel, or what?

One of the several reasons for this information is to permit others to
work out which kernel version(s) should be fixed.

is_vma_temporary_stack() is already declared in rmap.h. We should not
declare it in two places.

include/linux/huge_mm.h doesn't include any headers at all. It
is one of those files which require its user to set up the

So, lacking any additional infomation I'd say that your mystery build
breakage was caused by a failure to include rmap.h.
