Comment 144 for bug 396286

Repeatedly trying to rebuild 2.6.32-9-generic with Peter Anvin's patch following instructions at consistently fails this way:

  CC arch/x86/kernel/alternative.o
  CC arch/x86/kernel/i8253.o
  CC arch/x86/kernel/pci-nommu.o
  CC arch/x86/kernel/tsc.o
  CC arch/x86/kernel/io_delay.o
  CC arch/x86/kernel/rtc.o
  CC arch/x86/kernel/trampoline.o
  CC arch/x86/kernel/process.o
arch/x86/kernel/process.o: final close failed: File truncated
make[5]: *** [arch/x86/kernel/process.o] Error 1
make[4]: *** [arch/x86/kernel] Error 2
make[3]: *** [arch/x86] Error 2
make[2]: *** [sub-make] Error 2
make[1]: *** [/home/q-funk/Projektit/linux-2.6.32/debian/stamps/stamp-build-generic] Error 2
make: *** [binary-generic] Error 2

This is on a system with 1 GB of RAM, so I'm really not sure how this "file truncated" keeps on showing up.
