Stephen this change is not right.

In order to preserve the semantics that existed before your
headerops changes, this test must be there. From the original
qeth_main.c code:

if (qeth_get_netdev_flags(card) & IFF_NOARP) {
dev->rebuild_header = NULL;
dev->hard_header = NULL;
dev->header_cache_update = NULL;
dev->hard_header_cache = NULL;
}
...
if (card->options.fake_ll &&
(qeth_get_netdev_flags(card) & IFF_NOARP))
dev->hard_header = qeth_fake_header;
if (dev->type == ARPHRD_IEEE802_TR)
dev->hard_header_parse = NULL;
else
dev->hard_header_parse = qeth_hard_header_parse;

With the way you set up headerops in the driver, the only way
to preserve the ARPHRD_IEEE802_TR guard, is to keep the
test that you added to qeth_hard_header_parse().

Andrew, please go back to using the first patch you wrote to
fix the build, alternative resync with net-2.6.git as that
version of the build fix is there too.

Thans.
