Both DRIVER_AUTHOR and DRIVER_AUTHOR2 are silly macros. Put the name
in directly. That way you won't need the comment explaining where to
find the definitions. Also normally people use gt lt brackets for

MODULE_AUTHOR("Victor Soriano <vjsoriano@xxxxxxxxx>");
MODULE_AUTHOR("Mark Einon <mark.einon@xxxxxxxxx>");

Go ahead and fix this in a later patch if you want. All the macros
there should probably be replaced.

Btw, the problems with have complicated things here, so
I can't tell if you have already fixed this, but the driver doesn't
compile any more. The Kconfig file says it "depends on NETDEV_1000"
but NETDEV_1000 isn't around any more since f860b0522f65d3
"drivers/net: Kconfig and Makefile cleanup" was merged.
