This one really looks like a compiler bug (the undefined symbol is an 
internal gcc one: ".L192"). And the driver that gets it (kl5kusb105) has 
not actually had any changes since 2.6.29 - although header files that it 
includes obviously do have some, so it's entirely possible that some 
infrastructure change causes it to trigger.

Martin hit another bug with his compiler (an ICE in gcc, fixed by commit 
26a9a418237c0b06528941bca693c49c8d97edbe), which is why I'm so willing to 
blame that.

This one seems to have become "not-a-bug". Yes, LTP used to check that you 
cannot send SIGSTP to init, but people do want to send signals to init 
(especially when they are inside pid-namespace containers), and as long as 
it's only a LTP test that already got modified (and not some actual 
real-life usage), I'm considering this a "test failed because it was 
testing for behavior that we want to change" at least for now.
