Hi all,

After merging the final tree, today's linux-next build (powerpc
allyesconfig) failed like this:

arch/powerpc/kernel/kgdb.c: In function 'kgdb_arch_exit':
arch/powerpc/kernel/kgdb.c:492:2: error: '__debugger_breakx_match' undeclared (first use in this function)

Caused by commit 9422de3e953d ("powerpc: Hardware breakpoints rewrite to
handle non DABR breakpoint registers").  I applied "powerpc: Fix typo in
breakpoint kgdb code" from Mikey for this.

arch/powerpc/kernel/exceptions-64s.S: Assembler messages:
arch/powerpc/kernel/exceptions-64s.S:1204: Error: attempt to move .org backwards

Not sure what caused that - probably a combination of patches adding code
low down.  I have just left this broken for today.
