Subject: linux-next: build failure after merge of the wireless-next tree

Hi John,

[I started by reverting commit 161d78555435 "Revert "Staging: rtl8812ae:
remove modules field of rate_control_ops""]

After merging the wireless-next tree, today's linux-next build (x86_64
allmodconfig) failed like this:

In file included from drivers/staging/wlan-ng/p80211netdev.c:91:0:
drivers/staging/wlan-ng/cfg80211.c: In function 'prism2_scan':
drivers/staging/wlan-ng/cfg80211.c:419:10: error: implicit declaration of function 'ieee80211_dsss_chan_to_freq' [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]

Caused by commit 3ebe8e257307 ("ieee80211: remove function ieee80211_
{dsss_chan_to_freq, freq_to_dsss_chan}").

I disabled the staging tree driver like this:
