Build fails for ia64 with linux-2.6.0-test1-bk2 with missing file.
Description of problem:
1. Pulled 2.6.0-test1
2. Pulled 2.6.0-test1-bk2 patch
3. Applied bk2 patch to 2.6.0-test1
4. make menuconfig
5. make compressed modules
Failed with the following:
   kernel/profile.c:11:26: asm/sections.h: No such file or directory
   kernel/profile.c: In function `profile_init':
   kernel/profile.c:38: `_etext' undeclared (first use in this function)
   kernel/profile.c:38: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
   kernel/profile.c:38: for each function it appears in.)
   kernel/profile.c:38: `_stext' undeclared (first use in this function)
   make[1]: *** [kernel/profile.o] Error 1
   make: *** [kernel] Error 2
Proposed Solution:
I believe that the include/asm/sections.h files needs to be linked to one of
the incude/asm-arch/sections.h files.
