    Subjectlinux-next: build failure after merge of the final tree (wireless tree related)
    Hi all,

    After merging the final tree, today's linux-next build (powerpc
    allyesconfig) failed like this:

    drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi/rtl8192cu/sw.c: In function 'rtl92cu_init_sw_vars':
    drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi/rtl8192cu/sw.c:60: error: implicit declaration of function 'vmalloc'
    drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi/rtl8192cu/sw.c:60: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer without a cast
    drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi/rtl8192cu/sw.c: In function 'rtl92cu_deinit_sw_vars':
    drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi/rtl8192cu/sw.c:74: error: implicit declaration of function 'vfree'

    Caused by commit 442888c706e90634c4cc3441751b43115a7d8506 ("rtlwifi:
    rtl8192cu: Add routines dm, fw, led and sw"). Missing an include of
    linux/vmalloc.h. See Rule 1 in Documentation/SubmitChecklist.

    I added the following patch:

    From: Stephen Rothwell <>

    Subject: [PATCH] rtlwifi: include vmalloc.h for needed routines

    but then got:

    and lots more.

    So I have used the wireless tree from next-20110221 for today.
