Letting the chips far where they may, I quote Richard J. Strasser:
>I got following error on compiling 2.1.34 on a Dell Poweredge Dual Pentium:

If you look at the code, there is even a comment pointing to a pending
problem... the same code for x86_do_profile is in smp.c and time.c. Neither
of them are marked "static." Insert static before the definitions in both

static inline void x86_do_profile...

While I'm at it, ltpc.c is missing a ';' around line 1268 or so. It's been
missing since I started building 2.1 @ 2.1.30.
