There is a compile time error in Linux 2.5.30 in fs/partitions/check.c,
in function devfs_register_partitions. The line 470 contains an error,
dev->part[p].de = NULL; p is a pointer to a structure (hd_stuct). I
searched around 2.4.18, and it is dev->part[part + minor].de = NULL; I
tried changing that line, and I investigated, now it compiles and works.
A patch is attached, thx.
