    There is too little context here, what was the exact error?
    I'm assuming it's the module vs. builtin problem?

    The menuconfig patches were a little aggressive here, it created a config
    symbol where there was none before and in this case it even changed
    dependencies (it turns USB into a bool).
    I'm also a little irritated by the "default y", if I enable V4L I'm very
    tempted to check what other useless stuff has been automatically enabled,
    which I have to turn off again.

    bye, Roman
