Subjectlinux-next: build failure after merge of the akpm tree
Hi all,

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

mm/madvise.c: In function '__do_sys_process_madvise':
mm/madvise.c:1194:9: error: implicit declaration of function 'compat_import_iovec'; did you mean 'import_iovec'? [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]
1194 | ret = compat_import_iovec(READ,
| ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
| import_iovec

Caused by commits

b50ef3fed31c ("mm/madvise: introduce process_madvise() syscall: an external memory hinting API")
84b51d510a77 ("mm: do not use helper functions for process_madvise")

interacting with commit

e42ff3fae0a2 ("iov_iter: transparently handle compat iovecs in import_iovec")

from the vfs tree.

I have applied the folloing patch for today:
