All of the "__vdso__... was not declared" warnings was not introduced by
me. But i can fix if you like.

The "sorry, unimplemented: -mfentry isn’t supported for 32-bit in
combination with -fpic" did not occur on my system. I think it is a
compiler issues, i am using for x86_64 the gcc 4.3.4.

I will add a

KBUILD_CFLAGS_32 := $(filter-out -mfentry,$(KBUILD_CFLAGS_32))

to the arch/x86/vdso/Makefile.

Hope this solve your problem.

Since i have only a 7 year old system with am intel quad "Core 2" 2.54
GHz and a SATA II interface i am not able to run the suggested ktest
tool. This would take days! A simple allyesconfig for a X86_64 takes
about 2 hours.

What i will do now is run again a allyesconfig for i386 and X86_64 and
next a allnoconfig and defconfig. I see no reason to a allmodconfig
since there is no module dependency in this patch set.

I will not test the X86_X32 since i have no environment for this. Nor
the CONFIG_CRYPTO_AES_NI_INTEL since my compiler does not support this.

That is the best effort i currently can do in my spare time. If this is
not enough i have no idea how to continue.
