Hi, Ravali.

That indicates the problem is likely in your new header file. Can you post your
changes to the list, or some git repository somewhere, or a pastebin?

As already mentioned to you, best thing would be to send it as a patch to the
mailing list, pointing out that it doesn't build.

Best of luck.
