Hitting this one in a non-hugepage build of upstream-sfr:

  CC      arch/mips/mm/gup.o
arch/mips/mm/gup.c:70:51: error: redefinition of ‘get_huge_page_tail’
include/linux/mm.h:379:51: note: previous definition of ‘get_huge_page_tail’ 
was here
make[2]: *** [arch/mips/mm/gup.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [arch/mips/mm] Error 2
make: *** [arch/mips] Error 2

I fixed this one up by removing the local definition of get_huge_page_tail
but you may want to re-test.
