Hi Ben,

Upstream has fixed several errors pointed out by you and Oliver (thanks
for that), but some of them are still pending.

I will send patches on top of my last driver submission (if the proper
way would be resubmit the whole code, please tell me. Anyway I need to
clarify some doubts...

What is not longer needed? The assignment, the whole "else" branch? If
the assignment is what is not needed, can I just remove that line, right?

Ok, I will just remove both #ifdefs, but why is that? Maybe in previous
versions of the kernel the net_device_ops struct was introduced and now
it's present no matter how you configure your kernel?

I think that Greg is the maintainer for the USB subsystem, so if he has
no further commets, I will try to submit fixes for both your and
Oliver's comments along with the upstream developers.

Thanks for your comments.
