Thread-topic: Inclusion of rrm.o in export-objs
I'm a little new, so let me know if this is out of place.

After grabbing the latest source via CVS, I ran into compilation
problems.
A little (read "a lot of") searching, and I found I was not alone with
this problem.
This fix, worked for me. But I'm not sure why no one else had run into
it.

My Makefile knowledge is extremely limited to say the least. But are
there possible side-effects of this particular fix? And how does a fix
like this, find it's way back into the source tree?

Any pointers, or other information welcome.

Hello

I do not have post access to linux-mips@oss.sgi.com, so I try to send
it here instead.

I tested to compile the kernel from the mips kernel CVS last night,
and it stopped with the following error.  The error line is
"EXPORT_SYMBOL(<symbol>');".  The object rrm.o must be added to
export-objs.  Patch below.
