User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; ru-RU; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050322 Firefox/1.0.2 Red Hat/1.0.2-1.4.1

Description of problem:
There is a little bug in kernel sources that prevents to build kernel successfully with enabling crash module ().

I test only i386 platform, but probably it exists on x86_64 and mips platforms because of identical definition of page_is_ram function.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. enable crash as module or built-in
2. run make 
3. got error message

Actual Results:  ...
  LD      init/built-in.o
  LD      .tmp_vmlinux1
drivers/built-in.o(.text+0x4cc4d): In function `crash_read':
include/asm/crash.h:42: undefined reference to `page_is_ram'
make: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1

Expected Results:  linking ok

Additional info:

I attached a little patch to fix this bug
