Ah, I see what happened now: I submitted a patch that lumped together
two patches, disabling both fsl_mxc_udc and imx_udc. You already had
a fix for the first one, so I dropped my patch, but now I see the
build error for the second one that my patch was avoiding.

The last patch to imx_udc that seems to have seen more than just
build testing was probably "USB: gadget: imx_udc: don't queue more
data when zlp is to be sent", while fsl_mxc_udc looks actively
maintained. It's not completely clear to me whether these
are actually two drivers for the same hardware, of whether
imx_udc is the i.mx1 variant and fsl_mxc_udc is the i.mx2 variant.

What I can say is that no platform in the kernel currently defines
an "imx_udc" platform_device, so it is certainly unused, and has
been since at least e08300043e in 2010.

I would suggest that we mark the imx_udc driver as 'depends on
BROKEN' right away, since no in-tree user needs it, and any
out of tree user is already broken in 3.8. I also wouldn't
mind removing the driver unless the imx maintainers have
a plan for it.

Yes, I submitted patches for these, too, and like this case, we decided
to drop my patch in favor of a better fix, which has not yet gone
in. Today I sent emails about these as well, in the hope that we
can find a solution.
