linux module problem with new kernel

Hi all,

  As far as I can tell, the  problem with the linux module is in the
makefile's use of the -fno-common option when compiling
src/sys/emulation/linux/i386/linux_genassym.c.  This causes the symbols to
be included  in the BSS section of the object file and causes the
src/sys/kern/ to write an empty linux_assym.h file because the
symbols are no longer in 'common' blocks.  I'm still sorting through the
cvs changes to find the cause...

Hope that helps...
