RE: [Linux-ia64] kernel update (relative to 2.5.59)

I had the same problem with mconf when I built with 2.96 (it just
printed the name of the Kconfig file and exited with status 1,
strace didn't show any unexpected system call failures).

I got a successful build using gcc 3.1 (well after I did

	s/.owner = THIS_MODULE;/.owner = THIS_MODULE,/

in a couple of the drivers/char/agp/*.c)

I'm now up and running on a BigSur.
