What if you don't have asm-i386 but asm-sparc or whatever is available? The
intel book isn't meant for intel only based systems. So instead I chose to
use the include/asm symbolic link. The Linux kernel 'make config' process
creates the asm symbolic link which points to asm-i386 asm-ppc or whatever
your system is based on.
