I mean quit simply your patch adds to the Makefile the line:
obj-$(CONFIG_IPV6_GRE) += ip6_gre.o

But that your patch does not include a file named ip6_gre.c

Also your patch description talks about ip6gre_tnl_link_config and
ip6gre_newlink but those functions do not exist in your patch.  I
presume those functions are implemented in the missing ip6_gre.c

So please read the patch you sent to the mailing list and figure
out which file or files are missing.
