I have found one problem with the wifi driver 'rtl8188eu': when it's selected as built-in, the compilation fails with the below error:

Code: Select all
  CC      drivers/net/wireless/rtl8188eu/os_dep/linux/ioctl_linux.o
drivers/net/wireless/rtl8188eu/os_dep/linux/ioctl_linux.c:10834:2: error: unknown field ‘private’ specified in initializer

The following patch fixes this issue.

diff --git a/drivers/net/wireless/rtl8188eu/Kconfig b/drivers/net/wireless/rtl8188eu/Kconfig
