Description Mikuláš Patočka 2012-09-27 18:31:03 UTC
Description of problem:
Make exits with internal error

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
make-3.81-20.el6.x86_64

How reproducible:
not reproducible, it is supposedly a race condition

Steps to Reproduce:
I ran "make -j2 2>&1|tee mk.log" to build RHEL 6 kernel.

Actual results:
drivers/input/mouse/sentelic.c: In function 'fsp_init':
drivers/input/mouse/sentelic.c:827: error: implicit declaration of function 'kzalloc'
cc1: warnings being treated as errors
drivers/input/mouse/sentelic.c:827: error: assignment makes pointer from integer without a cast
make[3]: *** [drivers/input/mouse/sentelic.o] Error 1
make[2]: *** [drivers/input/mouse] Error 2
make[1]: *** [drivers/input] Error 2
make[1]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
make: *** [drivers] Error 2
make: INTERNAL: Exiting with 3 jobserver tokens available; should be 2!


Expected results:
make should not exit with an internal error
