genassym.cf wants sizeof(struct msgbuf) for MSGBUFPTECNT, but
struct msgbuf no longer exists. This causes genassym.sh to output a
warning (from gcc), and MSGBUFPTECNT ends up being #defined as 0.
config a kernel, make assym.h and look for the warning from gcc:
/tmp/7100.c: In function `f56':
/tmp/7100.c:55: sizeof applied to an incomplete type
Then look at assym.h and notice "#define MSGBUFPTECNT 0"
I'm not sure... actually, I just checked, and it looks like
like MSGBUFPTECNT is never actually used anywhere. Perhaps it should
just be deleted?
