Something like this would most likely allow us to use Liquorix kernels with some older versions of VMware:

:: Code ::
--- a/arch/x86/kernel/init_task.c
+++ b/arch/x86/kernel/init_task.c
@@ -15,6 +15,7 @@ static struct files_struct init_files = INIT_FILES;
 static struct signal_struct init_signals = INIT_SIGNALS(init_signals);
 static struct sighand_struct init_sighand = INIT_SIGHAND(init_sighand);
 struct mm_struct init_mm = INIT_MM(init_mm);
+EXPORT_UNUSED_SYMBOL(init_mm);

 /*
  * Initial thread structure.


@damentz: Please consider applying.

Patch merges cleanly and is not invasive - you should see this patch in 2.6.30-1.dmz.3.
