Building UP kernel with KGDB enabled produces the following errors and warning
(fatal due to -Werror in arch/mips/kernel/Makefile):

In file included from arch/mips/kernel/gdb-stub.c:142:
include/asm/smp.h:25:1: "raw_smp_processor_id" redefined
In file included from include/linux/sched.h:69,
                 from arch/mips/kernel/gdb-stub.c:126:
include/linux/smp.h:88:1: this is the location of the previous definition
In file included from arch/mips/kernel/gdb-stub.c:142:
include/asm/smp.h:62: error: redefinition of 'smp_send_reschedule'
include/linux/smp.h:102: error: previous definition of 'smp_send_reschedule' 
was here
include/asm/smp.h: In function `smp_send_reschedule':
include/asm/smp.h:65: error: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
arch/mips/kernel/gdb-stub.c: At top level:
arch/mips/kernel/gdb-stub.c:660: warning: 'kgdb_wait' defined but not used

Fix the errors by not directly including <asm/smp.h> (which is already included
by <linux/smp.h>) and the warning by enclosing kgdb_wait() in #ifdef CONFIG_SMP.

This should be applied to 2.6.23+ stable branches since -Werror was introduced
in 2.6.23-rc2; the errors only started occuring after 2.6.24...
