Martin - can we just remove the


from the s390 Kconfig file (or perhaps add "if BROKEN" or something to
disable it).

Because if it's not getting fixed, it shouldn't be exposed.

Hmm. I assume it's


that wants a forward-declaration of 'struct page', and doesn't include
any header files.

The fix is presumably to move the

#include <asm/cacheflush.h>

in drivers/staging/media/omap4iss/iss_video.c down to below the
<linux/*> includes?

The old patchwork link you had for a fix no longer works, I think
because the patchwork database got re-generated during the upgrade
(and the patchwork numbering isn't stable).
