mkxconfig error (DefaultColorDepth) + patch
I was having such a hard time trying to figure
out why I couldn't change the default color depth
using the boot commandline, and I finally found it.
When matching to change the default, the pattern
is only searching for a tab separator, not a space or
Big diff to notice is that DefaultColorDepth[ ]
now searches for BOTH space and tab, rather than just tab.

The problem is that gcc is not looking for the
header files in the /usr/src/linux/include directory
but in the /usr/include directory. Change this by
passing the -I /usr/src/linux/include parameter to gcc
while compiling. This will solve the problem. If you
trying to compile a module, you might get an error
with some header files called mach-generic-smp.h or
something. These files are simply not in the right
directory. Copy them to the parent folder of the
folder in which they are currently in. This will make
the compilation work(hopefully).
