Or atleast it used to.

I got this problem when I first patched up too. I looked at the sources for
the files I had errors in, and each one, for some odd reson, had a duplicate
following the real version. For me, this effected mm/slab.c,
arch/i386/lib/locks.S and arch/i386/kernel/i386_ksyms.c. I deleted the 2nd
copy and everything worked fine.
