  1. 2.6.23-rc9 compile error drivers/video/fbmon.c

    CC drivers/video/fbmon.o
    drivers/video/fbmon.c: In function ‘fb_parse_edid’:
    drivers/video/fbmon.c:867: error: expected ‘=’, ‘,’, ‘;’, ‘asm’ or ‘__attrib
    _’ before ‘*’ token
    drivers/video/fbmon.c:867: error: ‘block’ undeclared (first use in this func
    )

    This line reads:
    unsigned char$*block;

    Source error, or is my tree simply corrupt?

    I downloaded a new tree.
    That file has quite a few single-bit errors in my old tree.
    Mostly of the +16 variety.
    Seems I have to look for bad memory :-( :-( :-(

    The $ is a space character in my copy of the tree, so it seems to be a
    corrupted tree with a bit error on your side ($ and the space character
    differ by only one bit).
