Re: [PATCH] fix modpost when CONFIG_ALPHA_TSUNAMI=y
Hi Matt,

I see that you're one of the maintainers of the alpha architecture in
the Linux kernel. Compiling with CONFIG_ALPHA_TSUNAMI=y has been broken
for a while, and the fix seems simple. Is there any chance you can sign
off on the patch I proposed on Feb 18? Or is there a better solution
for this build problem?
