Until the next compile error...

Both the -pre7-ac4 and the -pre8 patches contain a
drivers/net/wan/8253x/readme.txt that says:

<-- snip -->

+2) The following network ioctl have been removed
+#define SAB8253XSETMAC (SIOCDEVPRIVATE + 5 + 2)
+#define SAB8253XGETMAC (SIOCDEVPRIVATE + 5 + 3)
+along with the PSEUDOMAC structure and references to this structure.
+The following standard ioctls provide the same functionality.
+#define SIOCSIFHWADDR 0x8924 /* set hardware address
+#define SIOCGIFHWADDR 0x8927 /* Get hardware address */
+The 8253xmac tool has been removed. To start the ASLX sab8253x
+network interface, you should use a command like the following with
+the substitutions appropriate to your environment.

<-- snip -->

But both the -pre7-ac4 and the -pre8 patches add a 8253xmac.c and the
Makefile tries to compile it...

time explaining its a free country because its a police state.
