I already found a few more errors while trying to compile
2.5.20. I send you the patch as soon as I have successfully
compiled the kernel _without_ problems (hopefully today).
FYI. I do not compile very much options; The main options
I compile ('coz I need 'em and nothing more...):
SCSI: QLogic ISP
Network: DECchip Tulip (dc2114x) and Early DECchip
Character Dev.: Support for console on serial port
Filesystems: EXT3 support, no ReiserFS
Network FS: NFS (as module)
