Thanks, looks good.

Compiling 2.6.12-rc1 or 2.6.12-rc1-mm1 for ppc64 with gcc4
fails with:

In file included from include/asm/spinlock.h:20,
                 from include/linux/spinlock.h:43,
                 from include/linux/signal.h:5,
                 from arch/ppc64/kernel/asm-offsets.c:17:
include/asm/paca.h:25: error: array type has incomplete element type
make[1]: *** [arch/ppc64/kernel/asm-offsets.s] Error 1
make: *** [arch/ppc64/kernel/asm-offsets.s] Error 2

This is an array-of-incomplete-type error.
Fix: move array decl to after the struct decl.
