Hi Ralf,

The patch failed all by itself, no context needed ;-). Anyway, since it was part
of a larger series, I would assume that it should have been added to -next as
part of that series, not through the mips tree. For whatever reason that did not
happen ... and as far as I can see, many if not all mips smp builds now fail
in the upstream kernel.

Any idea what the fix should be ?

Thanks,
Guenter
