Well, I've finished many different kernel configurations, and I persist in getting the
cc -O2 -Wall -Werror -Wstrict-prototypes -Wmissing-prototypes -Wpointer-arith -Wno-main -G 0 -mno-abicalls -mno-half-pic -I. -I../../../../arch -I../../../.. -nostdinc -I../../../../../gnu/sys -DMIPS1 -DMIPS3 -DLKM -DNKMEMCLUSTERS=1024 -DHZ=256 -DMAXUSERS=64 -D_KERNEL -Dpmax -c ../../../../arch/pmax/dev/rcons.c
../../../../arch/pmax/dev/rcons.c: In function `rcons_indev':
../../../../arch/pmax/dev/rcons.c: `RCONSDEV' undeclared (first use in this function)
../../../../arch/pmax/dev/rcons.c: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
../../../../arch/pmax/dev/rcons.c: for each function it appears in.)
*** Error code 1
The last attempt was with the supplied GENERIC kernel without modifications.
It is clear that the kernel code organisation is at issue here, rather than
the configuration files I had modified.
RCONSDEV is defined in arch/pmax/pmax/cons.h. That file contains an #include
for arch/pmax/dev/cons.h. arch/pmax/dev/rcons.c includes the latter, but not
the former file. By changing the #include in rcons.c from the pmax/dev to
the pmax/pmax/cons.h file, the issue is resolved.
After confirmation, this change should be commited, yes? :)
