Ok, so no common kernel source anytime soon. The undefined reference went
away after a clean build.

No, I don't have a plan to support both ia32 and ia64 with the ia64
patch.  I just don't have the time, equipment, or knowledge to maintain
the ia32 side of that equation.  The ACPI update I mentioned is one
big issue.  Another is the PCI BAR sizing problem -- ia64 requires
an approach that is unsafe on i386.

Of course, I do try to reduce the size of the ia64 patch by pushing
things upstream, and if it were ever reduced to zero, or to only
arch/ia64 things, then i386 should Just Work.  That's not likely to
happen anytime soon, though.

I don't have a clue on this one.  I'd try a clean build from scratch
to make sure everything was built by the same toolchain, with the same
options, etc.
