Sorry I missed that. For your convenience, here is the answer to the
original email:

Yes it looks so, this number happens in a number of places:

dns_query.c:(.text+0x39b84): undefined reference to `qdisc_hash_add'
include/linux/netdevice.h:1935: undefined reference to `qdisc_hash_add'
net/core/netevent.c:31: undefined reference to `qdisc_hash_add'
net/sched/sch_generic.c:789: undefined reference to `qdisc_hash_add'
sch_generic.c:(.text+0x33487): undefined reference to `qdisc_hash_add'
switchdev.c:(.text+0x3bf58): undefined reference to `qdisc_hash_add'
sysctl_net.c:(.text+0x31f70): undefined reference to `qdisc_hash_add'
(.text.dev_activate+0x228): undefined reference to `qdisc_hash_add'
(.text+0x37d0b): undefined reference to `qdisc_hash_add'
wext-proc.c:(.text+0x390a8): undefined reference to `qdisc_hash_add'

So it looks like a more general problem than specific to this patch.
