I don't try to compile the staging tree all the time, but I do tend to
try to check it every once in a while. So yes, let me know if there
are dependencies.

The one with inifinite errors was vt6655.

It may be due to network layer changes. I had some other drivers with
conflicts. Maybe this one didn't have content conflicts, but ended up
having conflicts due to changed semantics etc.
