Had a few issues, all self-inflicted (the biggie was 2 iptables modules that
needed fixing for the net namespace changes in git-net.patch - stuck an
&init_net in the right 2 places, a new #include line, and all was good).

I *did* have an odd issue with an out-of-tree GPL driver for a webcam.
(It's from http://mxhaard.free.fr/ if anybody cares).

The Makefile does this:

make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build SUBDIRS=/home/valdis/src/gspcav1-20070508 CC=cc modules

and has this sort of stuff in it:

DEFINES += -DGSPCA_ENABLE_DEBUG
DEFINES += -DCONFIG_USB_GSPCA_MODULE=1 -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__
DEFINES += -DVID_HARDWARE_GSPCA=0xFF -DGSPCA_VERSION=\"$(VERSION)\"

In -rc4-mm1, $DEFINES got added to the compile command - in -rc6-mm1, I
had to namually add a 'CFLAGS += $(DEFINES)' or GSPCA_VERSION came up undefined.

The actual problematic code in the Makefile:

-- begin Makefile snippet
ifneq ($(KERNELRELEASE),) # We were called by kbuild
CFLAGS += $(DEFINES)
obj-m += gspca.o
gspca-objs := gspca_core.o decoder/gspcadecoder.o

else # We were called from command line

KERNEL_VERSION = `uname -r`
KERNELDIR := /lib/modules/$(KERNEL_VERSION)/build
PWD := $(shell pwd)
MODULE_INSTALLDIR = /lib/modules/$(KERNEL_VERSION)/kernel/drivers/usb/media/
MODULE_INSTALLDIR2 = /lib/modules/$(KERNEL_VERSION)/kernel/drivers/media/video/

default:
$(MAKE) -C $(KERNELDIR) SUBDIRS=$(PWD) CC=$(CC) modules

install:
mkdir -p $(MODULE_INSTALLDIR)
rm -f $(MODULE_INSTALLDIR)spca5xx.ko
rm -f $(MODULE_INSTALLDIR2)gspca.ko
install -c -m 0644 gspca.ko $(MODULE_INSTALLDIR)
/sbin/depmod -ae

uninstall:
rm -f $(MODULE_INSTALLDIR)gspca.ko
/sbin/depmod -aq

endif
--- end Makefile snippet
The Make definitely falls into the 'else' part (verified by adding an 'echo'
to the default: target). Adding the CFLAGS += to the else, or moving the line
above the if, makes it work.
