Hi there .... When I tried to re-build the module for my wi-fi dongle,
I got the error that smp_lock.h was missing. I eventually found a
workaround on a Swedish site! Simply putting a symlink into an earlier
set of headers does the trick - this works for me. The file is in
/usr/src/linux-headers-[XYZ], and if the earlier one is not available
legacy headers can be found in the repo.
Might save someone a bit of head scratching. Should I report this as a
bug? If so, how?
