It appears that the following:

ChangeSet 1.1532.9.160 2004/02/04 10:54:15
  [PATCH] Fix ptrace in the vsyscall dso area
  From: Roland McGrath <>
  The #include is the part of this patch that matters, so the #ifdef below

breaks the tree for ia64 with the following:

arch/ia64/ia32/elfcore32.h:20: conflicting types for `elf_gregset_t'
include/asm/elf.h:160: previous declaration of `elf_gregset_t'
arch/ia64/ia32/elfcore32.h:22: conflicting types for `elf_fpregset_t'
include/asm/elf.h:163: previous declaration of `elf_fpregset_t'
arch/ia64/ia32/elfcore32.h:23: conflicting types for `elf_fpxregset_t'
include/asm/elf.h:157: previous declaration of `elf_fpxregset_t'
In file included from arch/ia64/ia32/binfmt_elf32.c:22:
arch/ia64/ia32/elfcore32.h:69:1: warning: "ELF_CORE_COPY_REGS" redefined
In file included from include/linux/elf.h:5,
                 from include/linux/mm.h:15,
                 from arch/ia64/ia32/binfmt_elf32.c:15:
include/asm/elf.h:169:1: warning: this is the location of the previous definition

I commented out the #include in linux/mm.h and everything builds fine.
I haven't booted it yet.

Does anybody have a correct fix?
