I'm now using the SDE-Linux 5.03.06 for the big-endian target. I
started the 2.4.22 kernel build process, but soon I get the following
compile error.

make[2]: Entering directory `/root/linux/arch/mips/mm'

I'm not able to understand these error messages. Could someone throiw
some light on this issue? Is this because of the toolchain that I'm
using for building the kernel?
