When building a new driver on kernel 2.6.39-rc3 when using a 32-bit system, I

Fix definition of struct usb_device_id in mod_devicetable.h

This error is strange in that this device is PCI based and contains no mention
of usb_device_id. There is a USB-based driver in the rtlwifi tree, but there is
also another PCI driver and it does not get this error.

I found the problem. It was a faulty MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE macro statement.
