Sorry for late reply.
I've just tried to re-build with defconfig from this autobuild and for
me it got successfully to the end.
I'm on master branch @ commit:
Author: Michael Trimarchi <michael at amarulasolutions.com>
Date: Sun Mar 8 09:28:13 2015 +0100
python-spidev: new package
I'll downgrade to the same commit as mentioned in autobuild:
Author: Gustavo Zacarias <gustavo at zacarias.com.ar>
Date: Tue Mar 3 15:43:09 2015 -0300
whois: bump to version 5.2.5
and will give it another try, but frankly I don't expect any differences
because I didn't find any sensible commits in between these 2 snapshots.
