Thanks for the reassurance.
Can one include one's own arch/mips/korva/skbuff.c?
But with network.o being a monolithic blob .o instead of a .a,
seems like patching the one file is not feasible.
I tried tweaking $(HEAD) but then stumbled onto this.
How does one package such a work-around? Include a patch file in
the LSP, which gets automatically run to munge on kernel sources?
Or will linux-mips.sf.net accept a patch for net/core/skbuff.c?
