This patch that moved PREFIX to acpi_bus.h broke the compilation of
drivers/acpi/numa.c because this file didn't include acpi_bus.h:

<-- snip -->

  gcc -Wp,-MD,./.numa.o.d -D__KERNEL__
-I/home/bunk/linux/kernel-2.5/linux-2.5.37-full/include -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-trigraphs -O2
-fomit-frame-pointer -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common -pipe -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2
-march=k6 -I/home/bunk/linux/kernel-2.5/linux-2.5.37-full/arch/i386/mach-generic
-nostdinc -iwithprefix include -D_LINUX -I/home/bunk/linux/kernel-2.5/linux-2.5.37-full/d
rivers/acpi/include -DACPI_DEBUG_OUTPUT -DKBUILD_BASENAME=numa -c -o
numa.o numa.c
numa.c: In function `acpi_table_print_srat_entry':
numa.c:48: parse error before `PREFIX'
make[2]: *** [numa.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory

<-- snip -->

The fix is simple:

You only think this is a free country. Like the US the UK spends a lot of time explaining its a free country because its a police state. Alan Cox
