I inadvertently left pte_young() macro definition commented out
in my copy of pgtable.h (I was checking nobody was using it).
The latest pull from _devel actually added some code that use
it. Strangely, instead of giving a link error, it causes ld to
just segfault ! So it's a source bug triggering an ld bug ;)
I fixed the kernel, the ld bug no longer manifest itself.
