I have found a issue when launching linux-kernel.sh on i686 host. In
short when compiling
Linux kernel, build script is blocked by mktimeconst who seems to be
failed on an infinite loop...
After investigation I found a bug in kernel/mktimeconst.c

This code come from patch linux-noperl-timeconst.patch
this test would never be true:  if (mul32 >= (1L<<31)) (line 125 in

I propose a one character patch :
< +				if (mul32 >= (1UL<<31))
> +				if (mul32 >= (1L<<31))

With this change linux-kernel build successfully.
