Hi all,

After merging the final tree, today's linux-next build (powerpc
allyesconfig) failed like this:

drivers/net/wireless/iwlegacy/built-in.o:(.rodata+0x29f0): multiple definition of `iwl_rates'
drivers/net/wireless/iwlwifi/built-in.o:(.rodata+0xa68): first defined here
powerpc64-linux-ld: Warning: size of symbol `iwl_rates' changed from 143 in drivers/net/wireless/iwlwifi/built-in.o to 130 in drivers/net/wireless/iwlegacy/built-in.o
drivers/net/wireless/iwlegacy/built-in.o:(.data+0x0): multiple definition of `bt_coex_active'
drivers/net/wireless/iwlwifi/built-in.o:(.data+0x668): first defined here
drivers/net/wireless/iwlegacy/built-in.o:(.rodata+0x750): multiple definition of `iwl_eeprom_band_1'
drivers/net/wireless/iwlwifi/built-in.o:(.rodata+0x27d0): first defined here
drivers/net/wireless/iwlegacy/built-in.o:(.rodata+0x3f0): multiple definition of `iwl_bcast_addr'
drivers/net/wireless/iwlwifi/built-in.o:(.rodata+0x24f8): first defined here
drivers/net/wireless/iwlegacy/built-in.o:(.bss+0x3d48): multiple definition of `iwl_debug_level'
drivers/net/wireless/iwlwifi/built-in.o:(.bss+0x21950): first defined here

Presumably caused by commit be663ab67077fac8e23eb8e231a8c1c94cb32e54
("iwlwifi: split the drivers for agn and legacy devices 3945/4965").

I have just left this one as it will only break strange configs (like
allyesconfig) but it needs to be fixed soon.

P.S. the SOB lines in that commit are a bit confusing, usually the author
is the first SOB line.
