This change (commit 39d2f1ab2a36ac527a6c41cfe689f50c239eaca3) seems to
have broken the m68k build:

|   CC      arch/m68k/kernel/asm-offsets.s
| In file included from linux/include/linux/mm_types.h:12,
|                  from linux/include/linux/sched.h:61,
|                  from linux/arch/m68k/kernel/asm-offsets.c:12:
| linux/include/linux/completion.h: In function 'try_wait_for_completion':
| linux/include/linux/completion.h:80: error: dereferencing pointer to 
incomplete type
| linux/include/linux/completion.h: In function 'completion_done':

incomplete type
| make[3]: *** [arch/m68k/kernel/asm-offsets.s] Error 1
| make[2]: *** [prepare0] Error 2
| make[1]: *** [sub-make] Error 2

(cfr. http://kisskb.ellerman.id.au/kisskb/buildresult/42080/)

Apparently there was not sufficient time between entering linux-next and
Linus' tree to notice this breakage before, while the original patch was already
posted on July 11...

In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
