It was fixed recently with

commit cbf1ef6b3345d2cc7e62407eec6a6f72a8b1346f
Author: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>
Date:   Sun Mar 31 07:01:47 2013 +0000

    sparc: use asm-generic version of types.h

and

commit a2d34dd41212032c03e77bc30c2023725def841a
Author: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>
Date:   Sat Mar 30 11:44:22 2013 +0000

    sparc: use generic headers

I tried to apply those patches, but it failed miserably due to the
userspace/kernel header separation. Given that, I figured that
it would be too invasive to fix, at least for me.

Yes, that fixes this problem, except now we get another known error:

kernel/built-in.o:(.text+0x8c8): undefined reference to `_sdata'

which you had fixed with

commit 5e7b6ed8e9bf3c8e3bb579fd0aec64f6526f8c81
Author: Geert Uytterhoeven <geert@linux-m68k.org>
Date:   Wed Jun 20 12:52:58 2012 -0700

    xtensa: replace xtensa-specific _f{data,text} by _s{data,text}

After applying both patches to the 3.4-stable queue, xtensa:defconfig builds
successfully.

Thanks,
Guenter
