That doesn't fix it. With that patch an 'make oldconfig' all NETPOLL stuff gone and we end up with :

...

If I get that right select is needed here because all NETPOLL{_*} depends on if NETDEVICES && if NET_ETHERNET.

Also doing

...
select NETPOLL_TRAP
select NETPOLL
select NET_POLL_CONTROLLER
...

makes the driver happy and everything compiles fine.

I think there may be a logical issue ( again if I got it right ).
We need some ethernet card to work with kgdboe right ? but we don't have any if !NETDEVICES && !NET_ETHERNET.

So maybe some ' depends on ... && NETDEVICES!=n && NET_ETHERNET!=n ' is needed too ?

( really sory if I said something stupid these Kconfig depends are not really easy to figure for me )
