I hadn't thought about that... Checking...

Yes, I believe this is a regression.

In v3.16, my allmodconfig build had:

CONFIG_IEEE802154_6LOWPAN=m
CONFIG_6LOWPAN_IPHC=m
CONFIG_BT_6LOWPAN=y

Without my patch it has:

CONFIG_6LOWPAN=y
CONFIG_IEEE802154_6LOWPAN=m
CONFIG_BT_6LOWPAN=m

and iphc is what's in net/6lowpan/built-in.o now.

Gr{oetje,eeting}s,

                        Geert
