Problem Description: Unable to compile uniprocessor kernel with acpi-20041105-
26-stable-release patch, with IO APIC disabled

Steps to reproduce:
Try to compile 2.6.9 kernel, patched with acpi-20041105-26-stable-release with 
IO APIC disabled. Compilation stops and the following error is displayed:

  CC      arch/i386/kernel/acpi/boot.o
arch/i386/kernel/acpi/boot.c: In function `acpi_boot_init':
arch/i386/kernel/acpi/boot.c:821: warning: implicit declaration of function 
  CC      arch/i386/kernel/acpi/earlyquirk.o
arch/i386/kernel/acpi/earlyquirk.c: In function `check_bridge':
arch/i386/kernel/acpi/earlyquirk.c:16: error: `acpi_skip_timer_override' 
undeclared (first use in this function)
arch/i386/kernel/acpi/earlyquirk.c:16: error: (Each undeclared identifier is 
reported only once
arch/i386/kernel/acpi/earlyquirk.c:16: error: for each function it appears in.)
make[2]: *** [arch/i386/kernel/acpi/earlyquirk.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [arch/i386/kernel/acpi] Error 2
make: *** [arch/i386/kernel] Error 2

Examined include/asm/acpi.h and it looks like acpi_skip_timer_override is 
defined only then CONFIG_X86_IO_APIC option specified. Probably check_bridge 
should not be used then.
Comment 1 Len Brown 2004-11-30 22:54:47 UTC
I build several UP kernels without IO_APIC and don't see any errors. 
is included in the build only if CONFIG_X86_IOAPIC 
so I don't see how the errors above resulted if that was not in the config. 
Pleaes do a make clean before building -- it may be that 
some dependencies in the build were not cleared. 
If you still have a problem with a clean build of the latest patch, 
please re-open and attach the failing .config.

Comment 3 Oleg I. Vdovikin 2004-12-01 02:40:30 UTC
Len, I've checked patch - it does include earlyquirk.o then CONFIG_ACPI_BOOT is 
enabled. Right? And it does not check for IO APIC.

please re-download the patch, it has been updated with the fix.
re-open if you have problems with the new one.
