Oops. Forgot to assign it to ia64 

Same applies to bktr.

State Changed
From-To: open->closed

The problem with the @gprel relocation was related to the fact 
that we compiled with short data and without -fpic. As a result, 
the compiler assumed it could create @gprel relocations to access 
data objects placed in the short data (.sdata or .sbss) sections. 
The fix is to disable short data for kernel builds (including 
modules).
