    Seems indeed to be an issue with 32 bit systems. I compiled it with ARCH=i386 on my 64 bit main system, the error seems to appear immediately after the bzImage is built:
    Code:
    Setup is 16560 bytes (padded to 16896 bytes).                                   
    System is 6101 kB                                                               
    CRC eddb97dc                                                                    
    Kernel: arch/x86/boot/bzImage is ready  (#3)

      MODPOST 3159 modules

    make: *** [modules] Error 2
    This is all I get. The kernel compiles fine when compiled as 64 bit. Now compiling on a real 32 bit system to see if this is a problem with the build environment, but this will take some time. If this turns out to be an issue with 32 bit systems, do I report it as usually, since this would be a bug that only exists in agd5f's repository?

      You can start today. Or, if you don't want to patch the kernel yourself, you can wait a few days until these patches are mainlined and check it out from git.
      Git: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/~agd5f/l...ext-3.11-wip-2
      Try it at home.

        I've always raged and said I wished I had bought Intel machines for my mobile PC's instead of AMD... but with the way things are going, there's a good chance with Wayland coming along and the improvement in these FOSS AMD drivers that my two aforementioned AMD machines might be running a full on Wayland powered desktop way before even my primary machine, which is an NVIDIA powered desktop.

        Should be fun testing.

          Maybe my radeon card will actually WORK for once without roasting. Right now its just a waste of space.

          How will this affect switchable graphics?

            Thanks to AMD Open Source Graphics Team for releasing this code!
            North Bridge P1 state will work now too?

            You can retest APU that you have against Sandy/Ivy/Haswell GPU's but this time AMD APU will run on high clocks.

              What is the "magical" switch to turn this on because it isn't on by default?

                Don't think there's any changes to provide switchable (Bumblebee-style) with another GPU such as Intel.

                  WOW

                  If any devs are reading, does this code include all features that fglrx does? I'm wondering if we should expect it to work as well as fglrx, or if there are known shortcomings still to be addressed.

                  Also, THANK YOU.

                    Unless you need OpenGL 4+ or openCL.

                      Which would amount to about 10 people worldwide.
