1.3.4 bombs when linking ppp.o

I just got the following error when compiling 1.3.4 with PPP support:

/usr/src/linux-1.3.4/arch/i386/lib/lib.a -o vmlinux
ppp.o(.text+0x277e): undefined reference to `get_int'
make: *** [vmlinux] Error 1

>From what I can tell, the line that used to read as follows in ppp.c:

ppp_debug = (int) get_fs_long (l);

has been changed to read:

ppp_debug = get_int ((int *) l);

I can't find a reference to "get_int" in any other .c or .h file in the tree.

Changing the line back gets it to compile and link, but I don't know what
the consequences are going to be.
