The new bnx2fc driver does not build with module support disabled:

drivers/scsi/bnx2fc/bnx2fc_fcoe.c:1815:17: error: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
drivers/scsi/bnx2fc/bnx2fc_fcoe.c:1815:28: error: ‘MODULE_STATE_LIVE’ undeclared (first use in this function)
drivers/scsi/bnx2fc/bnx2fc_fcoe.c:1878:17: error: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
drivers/scsi/bnx2fc/bnx2fc_fcoe.c:1878:28: error: ‘MODULE_STATE_LIVE’ undeclared (first use in this function)

and this build breakage has been reported to you two weeks ago:

In the future please do not push broken code upstream or put it into
drivers/staging/scsi/ if it has outstanding problems. I'm using the hack below
for the time being.
