Hi Andrew,

Today's linux-next merge of the akpm tree got a conflict in
kernel/ between commit 63a3f603413f (" Eliminate
Perl warning") from the tip tree and commit " remove
deprecated defined(@array)" from the akpm tree.

These both fix the same problem, I arbitrarily chose the akpm tree version.

I should try to resurrect the bc version (which doesn't need the canning junk, bc being the POSIX tool for arbitrary-precision arithmetic.) There was an error on one of akpm's machines long ago which confused the bcrap out of us, because bc hadn't changed, but recently someone pointed to a bug in *make* (relating to pipes) from around that era which would have explained (a) the failure, and (b) why it only hit one box even though bc was the exact same version.
