So far so good, but why is it allowed for a kernel header to include a file that does not exist?

mips is not managed in the tree of linus. So it is likely that it regulary breaks.

Then it is not "only a sysklogd bug", but rather two bugs, one in sysklogd, one in the kernel headers.

This is old, but was never really resolved.

In module.h I commented out

#include <asm/atomic.h>

and rebuilt sysklogd without any errors. Is there any platform that needs asm/atomic.h for some reason? If not, a bug to remove the #include should help.

Current sysklogd in stable (1.4.1-17) has an error in the rules file that caused it to be built without large file support, which means I can't keep weekly (or in some cases daily) log files on busy machines and have to do frequent rotations to avoid losing data at 2gb.

sysklogd 1.4.1-17.1 has the patched rules file and builds correctly with lfs. What will it take to get a corrected -17.2 without the #include into stable?
