This is an odd one which I will continue to try to debug.
A recent change added CONFIG_MAC80211_MESH to the fedora kernel. Oddly
this causes gcc to hang when building net/mac80211/debugfs_netdev.c. I
originally suspected a gcc-4.3 bug but I then reproduced this on RHEL5
This code is not yet in Linus's tree. Could someone point me to the git
tree where it lives? I am thinking a git-bisect may help me find the
specific change that causes this.
In the meantime it would be greatly helpful if we could add the
following to config-ia64 and config-ia64-generic:
# CONFIG_MAC80211_MESH is not set
This along with the change to not apply the utrace patch (see my earlier
mail) once again allows ia64 to build.
Just spoke with linville on irc. He had another report of this over the
weekend and has a fix which he is pushing into Fedora now.
Much appreciated John.
