Subject: Wimax - Makefile & Kconfig patch

Hi Inaky.

Noticed your wimax patchset when I browsed netdev on marc.info.
A few comments:

There is no reason to visit this directory if WIMAX is
not enabled so change it to:

obj-$(CONFIG_WIMAX) += wimax/

Above and in several other spots in the Kconfig
file you mix use of spaces and tabs for ident.
Please use tabs consistent and remember to indent
help text with:
<tab><space><space>

It is recommended to use:

i2400m-y := control.o
i2400m-y += driver.o

The important point here is that -y is preferred over -objs.

If you use '\' or '+=' is more personal preferences.
