What tree did you make this against? This file isn't in the linux-next
tree anymore.


greg k-h

The patch was based on git://

In linux-next, the file was moved to a different directory:

from drivers/staging/brcm80211/phy/wlc_phy_lcn.c
to drivers/staging/brcm80211/brcmsmac/phy/wlc_phy_lcn.c

It still needs the same fix. I'll send a new patch based on latest linux-next.
