in linux-3.0, zcache doesn't build correctly -- due to error in
Makefile, zcache.o is omitted from linking. This results in kernel
containing tmem.o but not zcache.o linked, and thus no zcache functionality.
This issue (and also a patch) was previously mentioned at
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/903912/ , however no action was taken
yet. Above-mentioned patch makes zcache work properly.
This is also reported as a bug at
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=39242 , but since its filing
there was no activity.
P.S.: Please Cc me if neccessary, as I'm not subscribed to this list.
