Hmm. Doing my once-a-release "try to compile everything in staging
after pulling from greg by using allyesconfig and also forcing all
staging", I get this:

multiple definition of `wl_msg_level'
  drivers/staging/brcm80211/brcmfmac/built-in.o:(.data+0x1a94): first
defined here

which looks like another case of "can't compile two things both into
the kernel".

Looks like the BRCMSMAC / BRCMFMAC drivers need to be mutually
exclusive. Something like

  depends on m || (BRCMSMAC != y)


Or they should just avoid using the same globally visible name.

I dunno.
