[linux-lvm] lvm 0.9 kernel build problems

Could someone give me some hints to why I get the following error when
trying to build my kernel with the lvm 0.9patches.  This box started out as
a RH7.0 with all current RH updates, then installed the stock 2.4.0-test10
kernel with lvm built into the kernel.  This build worked.  I then applied
the two patches for 2.4.0-test10 and they applied cleanly.  I normally build
kernels using the following approach -- make dep clean bzImage modules
modules_install, then take care of lilo.  This error happens during the
bzImage stage.
