Hi,

I just ran into the folowing problem when building a kernel.
This is the first time I build a MIPS kernel, and so I may
be making mistakes. Here's what I found:

When building the kernel, the linker chokes on
arch/mips/kernel/vmlinux.lds.s, because it contains

OUTPUT_ARCH(mips)
ENTRY(kernel_entry)
jiffies = jiffies_64 + 4;
SECTIONS
{
  . = ;
 *** ^ ***

This has been generated from arch/mips/kernel/vmlinux.lds.S,
which contains

  . = LOADADDR;

which is in turn generated from arch/mips/kernel/.vmlinux.lds.s.cmd,
which contains

cmd_arch/mips/kernel/vmlinux.lds.s := mips-linux-gcc -E 
-Wp,-MD,arch/mips/kernel/.vmlinux.lds.s.d -nostdinc -iwithprefix include 
-D__KERNEL__ -Iinclude  -D__KERNEL__ -Iinclude  -D__ASSEMBLY__ -I 
/home/GERMANY/tkoeller/mips-linux/build/linux/include/asm/gcc -G 0 
-mno-abicalls -fno-pic -pipe  -finline-limit=100000 -mabi=32 -march=r5000 
-Wa,-32 -Wa,-march=r5000 -Wa,-mips4 -Wa,--trap -Iinclude/asm-mips/mach-generic  
-D__KERNEL__ -Iinclude  -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-trigraphs 
-fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common -I 
/home/GERMANY/tkoeller/mips-linux/build/linux/include/asm/gcc -G 0 
-mno-abicalls -fno-pic -pipe  -finline-limit=100000 -mabi=32 -march=r5000 
-Wa,-32 -Wa,-march=r5000 -Wa,-mips4 -Wa,--trap -Iinclude/asm-mips/mach-generic  
-O2 -fomit-frame-pointer  -D"LOADADDR=" -D"JIFFIES=jiffies_64 + 4" -imacros 
/home/GERMANY/tkoeller/mips-linux/build/linux/include/asm-mips/sn/mapped_kernel.h
 -P -C -Umips    -o arch/mips/kernel/vmlinux.lds.s 
arch/mips/kernel/vmlinux.lds.S 

in line #1. The -D"LOADADDR=" looks suspicious, but I
have not been able to trace the problem beyond this point.

Can anybody help out?
