Hi list,
since a few days, whenever I try to recompile the latest kernel (from git) it 
always print this error message:

  AS      arch/mips/lib/strlen_user.o
  AS      arch/mips/lib/strncpy_user.o

make[1]: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1

make: *** [debian/stamp-build-kernel] Error 2

Any idea about a possible cause/solution?

Thank you very mcuh,
