Peter, sorry about delay in replying I was out of town for weekend.  I will 
apply your patch and git back to you on results.  A quick look a the patches 
indicates that nop.h and the users of nop.h are not addressed so I may have 
to combine your patches with Linus's Kconfig patch to get a working kernel.
