I need raid drivers on my NX, and after some research it appears the best way to fix this is to recompile the kernel :-/
I’m using this method, which seems like it uses all of the up to date systems.
Doing nothing else than the using the scripts, making the kernel fails due to a compiler issue :
drivers/base/dma-coherent.c:973:12: error: ‘shrink_thread’ defined but not used [-Werror=unused-function]

make: *** [drivers/base] Error 2
Makefile:1121: recipe for target ‘drivers’ failed

Doing some research, it seemed like it’s a compiler mismatch. The version on my system (up-to-date) is 7.5.0 and the recommended version is 7.3.1 in the tool-chain instructions.
I tried downloading the toolchain and setting the cross_compile as per the instructions, but then I get exec format errors which seems to be a result of mismatched architecture? I’m not sure.

Kbuild:20: recipe for target ‘kernel/bounds.s’ failed
make: *** [kernel/bounds.s] Error 2

I would prefer not to have to compile this externally and reflash.
