2 (maybe more but that's what I found) functions did have -not used- parameters removed:
on_each_cpu -- 3rd parameter (retry) removed because not used
smp_call_function -- 3rd parameter (retry) removed because not used
I made patches for x11-drivers/ati-drivers-8.522 and 8.532 - will make one for vmware-server if I get a chance as well. duno about other modules. linuxwacom for example doesn't have smp specific code

x11-drivers/ati-drivers-8.522 patch for 2.6.27-rc7
Created attachment 167058 [details, diff]
x11-drivers/ati-drivers-8.53 patch for 2.6.27-rc7
thse patches just need to be applied at the end of src_unpack (saving myself adding a patch for the ebuilds as it's a one-liner
CCing kernel,vmware and ati-drivers maintainers
Not sure how we got assigned this as it refers to external modules that taint the kernel. Reassigning to maintainer of the package that the patches refer too.
Though from my experience, ATI will eventually release a version of catalyst that compiles on 2.6.27. They usually just take longer than Nvidia.
there is a new version already .. actually has been for a while (although the darn thing still crashes on my laptop ...)
closing as wontfix..
