It may also be of note that I've done this on two separate machines.  I
guess I'm a little puzzled by this.  It must be true that very few people
actually have to turn off kABI, or this would have come up before.  I know
that I can turn off ocfs in the .config and see if there is anything else
that does not build correctly.
