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.
