that shouldn't happen
maybe you need to set the uname vars so that the build THINKS it is on 7.x
man 3 uname to find them.
UNAME_s If the environment variable UNAME_s is set, it will
UNAME_r If the environment variable UNAME_r is set, it will
UNAME_v If the environment variable UNAME_v is set, it will
UNAME_m If the environment variable UNAME_m is set, it will
it's not unusual to have to do this when cross building with a
Running an 8.x kernel with the 7.x userland is a crucial part of
we really can't do much more until we have the results.
If the build fails. it's either becasue the build detects the kernel
rev (which we want to
