Build failure: arm with server config

Postby kdave » Wed Oct 19, 2016 9:14 am

A few people on IRC reported a build failure, I'm providing some more information that I was able to collect from my builds:

The build message from Wizzup (http://sprunge.us/HdJh):

I observe the same build error, more specifically with armv7 and "server" flavor (the config https://github.com/kdave/kernel-source/ ... sec-server). It's ok on "desktop" flavor for armv7. The armv6 builds are all ok.

Last build that was ok: grsecurity-3.1-4.7.6-201609301918.patch
First failure: grsecurity-3.1-4.7.7-201610101902.patch

The diff-to-diff changes in the PaX patches seem ok, no changes regarding the atomics, but the interdiff on the above mentioned patches shows this diff:
