Ummm, on my recently compiled 1.2.23, it's more than just the dummy
driver; I don't remember exactly which modules had this problem, but I
think it included msdos.o, sbpcd.o, isofs.o, and lp.o. In most cases,
there was a complaint about bad_user_access_length being undefined.

So, how do you solve this problem?
