That's not so much a qla1280 problem, as a generic build problem ---
it's half baked; it includes ALTIX-specific code in the qla1280
driver, but doesn't build the SN subtree.

A temporary fix would be to change

#if defined(CONFIG_IA64_GENERIC) || defined(CONFIG_IA64_SGI_SN2)


#if defined(CONFIG_IA64_SGI_SN2)

in the QLA1280 driver, at least until the SN2 bits are included in the
generic kernel.

Jesse, is the SN2 stuff you're working on so hard going to be included
in generic builds?  Something like this (which doesn't yet work):
