This should fix it.

The problem is that CONFIG_PCMCIA is M, therefore drivers/net/pcmcia is
not entered during "make vmlinux". The patch fixes this and will produce
an (empty) pcmcia_net.o

And, yes, the directory will also be entered when doing "make modules",
because pcmcia is in $(mod-subdirs).
