IMNSHO, the MODULE_LICENSE() is not just annoying, it is evil.
The Linux kernel is licensed only under the GPL. I started contributing
to it from the very early days based on that license. All linked-in
code, and that includes modules, is a derivative work and must also be
released under the GPL. Adding an explicit way to declare a non-GPL
license weakens the license.

I didn't make that clear: kern_compat.h is also in the test directory.
The only required file missing the test directory is 'pci-scan.h'. This
is unchanged from the version in /pub/netwprk/pci-scan.h
This complete set of PCI network driver updates is in this morning's
