Hi Kamalesh

I know another patch is circulating, but please try the following.
diff --git a/drivers/net/sis190.c b/drivers/net/sis190.c
index b570402..0a5e024 100644
--- a/drivers/net/sis190.c

{
- static const u16 __devinitdata ids[] = { 0x0965, 0x0966, 0x0968 };

It is the better fix if you can confirm it working.
The section conflict issued by gcc happens because we try to
mix const and non-const data in the same section.
