The patch to include/asm-generic/Kbuild.asm doesn't seem to be required.

+#elif defined(__mn10300__)

Please use a CONFIG_ variable in such cases.

The parts outside arch/mn10300/ and include/asm-mn10300/ (except for the 
trivial "&& {,!}MN10300" Kconfig changes) should go separately through 
the maintainers or get ACKs from the maintainers, even more since they 
also contain cleanups like

-               .regions = {ERASEINFO(0x01000,64),
+               .regions        = {
+                       ERASEINFO(0x01000,64),

--- a/include/linux/kprobes.h
+++ b/include/linux/kprobes.h
+extern void __kprobes arch_remove_kprobe(struct kprobe *p);

This looks as if it will break compilation on avr32 and sparc64.

What is the status of support in upstream GNU binutils and GNU gcc?
