It builds fine for x86_64
Created attachment 574671 [details]
The patch fixes the build error for local test builds, how long till it's applied to the F15 - F18 kernel branches?
we'll wait to see if there are any iterations of the patch (doubtful) and bring it back when they suck it into Linus' tree or the tip tree.
There wound up being two fixes needed. These have been backported to all Fedora branches. Will be in the next build of all of them.
