The patch is missing an include statement:

  CC      kernel/gcov/gcc_4_7.o
kernel/gcov/gcc_4_7.c: In function ‘gcov_info_dup’:
kernel/gcov/gcc_4_7.c:293:4: error: implicit declaration of function ‘vmalloc’ [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]
kernel/gcov/gcc_4_7.c:293:20: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer without a cast [enabled by default]

With that added, it compiles and works with gcc 4.3.4 and 4.7.2 on
kernel 3.21-rc1 on s390x.
