FYI, the fixlet below is still needed, even after b0dee578 ("Fix modpost 
failure when rx handlers are not inlined."). The build error triggered 
on a -tip testbox.

Subject: [PATCH] net/mac80211/rx.c: fix build error

older versions of gcc do not recognize that ieee80211_rx_h_mesh_fwding()
is unused when CONFIG_MAC80211_MESH is disabled:

  net/built-in.o: In function `ieee80211_rx_h_mesh_fwding':
  rx.c:(.text+0xd89af): undefined reference to `mpp_path_lookup'
  rx.c:(.text+0xd89c6): undefined reference to `mpp_path_add'

as this code construct:

        if (ieee80211_vif_is_mesh(&sdata->vif))
                CALL_RXH(ieee80211_rx_h_mesh_fwding);

still causes ieee80211_rx_h_mesh_fwding() to be linked in.

Protect these places with an #ifdef.

commit b0dee578 ("Fix modpost failure when rx handlers are not inlined.")
solved part of this problem - this patch is still needed.

Fair enough, applied, thanks.
