Once again i face an error that i got with a previous
2.6 kernel (i already posted about this in january
i think).

My config G5 bi 2Ghz and you can grab my kernel
config here :

When compiling  2.6.12-rc1-bk5 i first get unknown
symbol _flush_disable_L1. This is in arch/ppc/kernel/l2cr.S
I changed the makefile in arch/ppc/kernel to have this :
obj-$(CONFIG_POWER4) += cpu_setup_power4.o
into :
obj-$(CONFIG_POWER4) += l2cr.o cpu_setup_power4.o

I am not sure this is good but with this i can go on.

And finaly i face back the same unknown function
than in my previous mail :
used in :

At that time i done some test defining CONFIG_6xx
which give others erros or undefining PPC_PREP
which give some others errors.

I finaly used a stupid patch to make it works (below)

But it seems that at some stage it gots forgotten.
Anyway what puzzle me is that it seems i am the
only one to face this ? Am i alone :) ?
