Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: linux-source-2.6.15

When compiling the kernel the following error appears. To compile the kernel I used the make-kpkg bundle.

LD      drivers/built-in.o
drivers/scsi/built-in.o: In function `do_drive_get_GTF': multiple definition of `do_drive_get_GTF'
drivers/ide/built-in.o: first defined here
ld: Warning: size of symbol `do_drive_get_GTF' changed from 575 in drivers/ide/built-in.o to 1307 in drivers/scsi/built-in.o
make[2]: *** [drivers/built-in.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [drivers] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.15'
make: *** [stamp-build] Error 2

To be more clear, I copied the stock .config from /boot to /usr/src/linux and loaded it while on 'make menuconfig' 
then I added the following options:

Device Drivers --->
  SCSI device support --->
    SCSI low-level drivers --->
     [*] Serial ATA (SATA) support
     [*] SiS 964/180 SATA support

** Affects: linux-source-2.6.15 (Ubuntu)
     Importance: Undecided
         Status: Unconfirmed
