linux-next: origin tree build failure

Hi all,

Today's linux-next build (powerpc ppc64_defconfig) failed like this:

cc1: error: include/linux/autoconf.h: No such file or directory

(while building the boot wrappers - lots more of the same)

Caused by commit ac4c2a3bbe5db5fc570b1d0ee1e474db7cb22585 ("zlib:
optimize inffast when copying direct from output"). autoconf.h moved
from include/linux to include/generated in commit
264a26838056fc2d759f58bec2e720e01fcb1bdb ("kbuild: move autoconf.h to
include/generated") which was in linux-next since 14 Dec 2009 and in
Linus' tree since 18 Dec 2009.

I added the following patch for today:

Subject: [PATCH] powerpc: fix boot Makefile for autoconf.h moving

autoconf.h moved from include/linux to include/generated

However, this then produced these errors:

arch/powerpc/boot/inffast.c:277:2: error: #error __BIG_ENDIAN nor __LITTLE_ENDIAN is defined

So I just reverted the original commit (after removing my fix above).

This latter build problem is probably only noticed if you build with a
separate object directory (i.e. with O=.. on the make command). The
previous PowerPC maintainer tells me that defining __KERNEL__ in the
BOOTFLAGS is wrong and should have been noticed.
