thanks geert, this already helped a lot, but know i don't get any further. may 
be you have another solution for this in your pocket?

in kernel/exit.c, there is a function defined called "release_task", which is 
used by arch/mips/kernel/irixsig.c .

the problem is, that the symbol is not exported. i inserted an 
"EXPORT_SYMBOL(release_task);" into exit.c after the function, and inserted 
exit.o in the export-objs list in the kernel/Makefile, and "extern static void 
release_task(...)" into arch/mips/kernel/irixsig.c

the problem is, that the linker is still unable to find the symbol when linking 
asm/mips/kernel/kernel.o :(

does anyone know, what i did wrong? its a regular misunderstanding in using the 
export-objs list by me, i think.
i already tried putting exit.o at the beginning and at the end of the list in 
kernel/Makefile, i didn't removed it from the obj-y list
