This entry is being used for tracking a regression from 2.6.29. Please don't
close it until the problem is fixed in the mainline.

Sent a reply to this on lkml, but looks like I lost the reply-to:
In short: the config posted on the original mail does not have CONFIG_SPU_BASE, so the only file touched by 60ee031940c1b09c137b617a8829e2f081961fe0 is never compiled.
I'd suggest re-bisecting to find the actual culprit.
