Issue solved works with that patch.

FWIW : This command sequence produced a linux executable which crashed too:

$> ~/devel/linux-2.6 $ patch -p1 < ../linux-2.6-
tip.git-055c47272b8f5679d08ccc57efea3cb4aaeb5fc6.patch patching file

$> ~/devel/linux-2.6 $ make ARCH=um CC="ccache gcc"
make[1]: `arch/um/sys-i386/user-offsets.s' is up to date.
CHK include/linux/version.h
CHK include/generated/utsrelease.h
CALL scripts/
CHK include/generated/compile.h
LINK linux

But after I compiled it w/o ccache

$> ~/devel/linux-2.6 $ make ARCH=um

linux executable works (!?!)

Anyway thx for the fix

MfG/Kind regards
