I am going through my build log. I found at least 2 problems:

1. In inclide/asm-ia64/processor.h, there is

# define loops_per_sec()       loops_per_sec

It is bad if the versioned symbol is enabled.

2. ACPI_RSDT_SIG is defined both as a string and an integer in
2 different header files. In include/linux/acpi.h

#define ACPI_RSDT_SIG  0x54445352 /* 'RSDT' */

In include/asm-ia64/acpi-ext.h

#define ACPI_RSDT_SIG "RSDT"

It is very confusing.

I am enclosing 2 patches. Please take a look.

Thanks.
