2.6.27-rc6-mmotm0913 build error - suspect itimers-fix-itimer-many-thread-hang.patch

Trying to build rc6-mmotm0913 dies:

CC security/selinux/hooks.o
security/selinux/hooks.c: In function â??selinux_bprm_committing_credsâ??:
security/selinux/hooks.c:2325: error: â??struct task_structâ?? has no member named â??it_prof_expiresâ??
make[2]: *** [security/selinux/hooks.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [security/selinux] Error 2
make: *** [security] Error 2

I suspect that itimers-fix-itimer-many-thread-hang.patch has a merge issue
against linux-next.patch, causing selinux_bprm_commiting_creds to be missing
an update. The code as it appears in my tree (end of that function
in security/selinux/hooks.c):

if (rc) {
for (i = 0; i < RLIM_NLIMITS; i++) {
rlim = current->signal->rlim + i;
initrlim = init_task.signal->rlim+i;
rlim->rlim_cur = min(rlim->rlim_max, initrlim->rlim_cur);

if (current->signal->rlim[RLIMIT_CPU].rlim_cur != RLIM_INFINITY) {
* This will cause RLIMIT_CPU calculations to be
* refigured.
current->it_prof_expires = jiffies_to_cputime(1);

Looks like that current->it_prof_expires should be something else, but the
linux-next.patch update for hooks.c is such a train wreck that I can't
figure out what's going on or what *should* be going on?

(After the 2 build errors I reported, plus hitting the CONFIG_DEBUG_MUTEXES
glitch that Kosaki Motohiro reported, I gave up - if the fix for this one
is obvious, I'll see what *else* I can break before the next -mmotm drops.. ;)
