In 2.6, the asm statement was moved into a .S file.  I'd rather see a
2.4 patch that does the same thing.

Also, gcc 3.3.1 was unable to build a stable kernel when I released
the 2.4.21 ia64 patch.  So use it at your own risk.

The patch that added INIT_QUOTA_MODULE_NAMES appears to have
been removed, so I think this problem no longer exists.  (I was
able to build a kernel with CONFIG_QUOTA=y.)
