I'm getting the following failure in main.o when running "lin uml."

I'm not entirely clear on what the module is doing. If it's building a 
host kernel that will run *instead* of the kernel installed by "lin 
linux," shouldn't it use the same source tree and patch set? I need it to, 
since my system runs on XFS which is currently not supported in the uml 

Also, is there any reason not to build against the host-skas3.patch patch
instead of the other? Host-skas provides threading for UML processes,
which supposedly speeds up the virtualized kernel by an order of

"Of course I'm in shape! Round's a shape, isn't it?"
