Please find attached my current cvs diff. The Makefile.config part 
should be fixed better - I know, but had no time yet...

I also attached the patch mentioned in the diff and the config that I 
currently use.

I have no SMP support at the moment, as I don't have a smp capable machine.

I don't know if it will build correctly, havn't yet finished my build - 
but I had a few tries already and today fixed - hopefully - the last 
build error.

I'm also not sure if the kernel will boot fine.

I'm just trying to get the first patches in devel, so if you update 
something in cvs, it's easier to merge with what I have...

At the moment I'm not *fixing* things. I just try to build a kernel with 
make alpha directly in my cvs checkout. If it fails, I check where it 
fails and disable the appropriate module in my alpha config. I will go 
through the ifnarch's after I finally managed to boot up the new kernel 
and see that it works. Where appropriate, I will work with kernel 
upstream to fix the problems - of course...

I'd really like to work together with the current kernel maintainers to 
provide a kernel spec/srpm, that builds on alpha.
