can you please define for the potential patch testers what the
symptoms of the problem are and the scope of testing?  ./Configure
--kernel=none works fine on amd64 with CVS sources, so how would the
tester know whether the patch fixes anything.  Or is the goal here to
make sure the patch doesn't break anything?
