Errors when building usb ethernet driver for new kernel
I have an existing driver that works on fedora-14 kernel (22.214.171.124). I need to rebuild it to run on the fedora-17 kernel (3.4.0). Driver is named qf9700 and is for a USB-NIC 10/100BT. When I build, I receive this error:
Building QF9700 USB2NET chip driver...

It seems that something may have changed between the kernel versions that is the cause of this. Anybody know what this might be and how to fix it?
