Hi Emanuel,

Thank you!  I messed around with the code for a while, things got more
and more involved and finally I thought it is a better strategy to just
ask the list :) (...which worked: I finally could compile the kernel :)
after disabling two drivers - both in the 'staging' directory, which,
following the advice of Jörn Nettingsmeier, rather should be disabled

So for the moment I am happy and probably better do not touch my kernel
again :)

Maybe it would be a good idea to let the authors of the driver know?
Not sure - I am just a dilettantish user :)
