User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.7 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20021216

Description of problem:
I selected the pnpbios option in make xconfig and then when I compile the kernel
2.4.20-2.6 I get:

make[3]: Entering directory `/var/builder/rpmbuild/BUILD/kernel-2.4.20/drivers/pnp'

I saw this in 2.4.20-2.2(Phoebe kernel) also. I did a mass grep through the tree
and didn't fine any header with CLONE_SIGNAL in it.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install kernel-source
2. cd /usr/src/linux-2.4.20-2.6
3. make distclean
4. make menuconfig
5. Select pnpbios option
6. Save settings
7. make dep clean bzImage

Actual Results:  Compiling errors

Expected Results:  Compiling to continue till finished

Additional info:

Comment 1 Nathan G. Grennan 2003-01-06 02:14:44 UTC
I just got an uncomfirmed report that pnpbios worked in 2.4.20-2.5.

Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2003-01-06 23:14:28 UTC
pnpbios doesn't actually work well either...
I'll just remove the config option

Comment 3 Brian Brock 2003-03-26 00:06:33 UTC
Confirmed that CONFIG_PNPBIOS is unset in all config files.  Resolving as fixed
in rawhide.
