2.1.111 fails to build, global "debug" in msp3400.c

hey -- just tried to build 2.1.111 for the first time, & the compile
choked here:

drivers/char/char.a(msp3400.o)(.data+0x0): multiple definition of `debug'
arch/i386/kernel/kernel.o(.text+0x1f54): first defined here
make: *** [vmlinux] Error 1

msp3400 defines a global int debug.

trapcs.c defines a function debug(void);

It seems like msp3400 should have that declared static, like,
say, pcxx.c.

Setting it to static allows the build to complete.

But why am I getting this when obviously other people have compiled
