after mirroring the CVS archive on ftp.linux.sgi.com i tried to crosscompile
the kernel (on an irix host, btw). Unfortunately the CVS version seems to be
a bit out of date/inconsistent. E.g. fs/nfs/nfsroot.c uses the obsolete
struct device ..
I finally managed to compile it with CONFIG_ROOT_NFS by replacing fs/super.c
by the one from the main kernel source and changing fs/nfs/nfsroot.c accordingly
(just replacing fs/nfs/nfsroot.c won't work) ..
Is anyone going to clean/merge this part of the kernel on sgi.com to be in sync
with the main kernel tree??
