Are there any version compatibilities between linux and klibc?  I tried to
compile the latest klibc (1.5.18) with the latest linux ( and
there is miserable compile failures.  It looks like klibc wants some headers
to be in include/asm (linked in my case to include/asm-x86) but they are
instead in include/asm-generic (it seems all headers but one are in there).

I put together this script to be sure I was doing the steps consistently for
each attempt (and also starting with a pristine set of files each time):


Here is one of the bad results (running the above script):


I added a step to copy include/asm-generic to include/asm and that seemed to
help some.  But there was nothing in the README files about needing to do
that.  Here is a lot of that result:


Does someone know the way I should be doing this?
