See Apple's promo page for info about Thunderbolt. It also describes how you can chain devices together instead of needing a hub or similar. My impression is that hot-plugging such daisy-chained devices are what are not supported by the linux commit; only single devices, whatever type they are.

You can use the modinfo command to give you all kind of information about a given module. For example: $ modinfo bluetooth filename: /lib/modules/3.17.4-1-ARCH/kernel/net/bluetooth/bluetooth.ko.gz alias: net-pf-31 license: GPL version: 2.19 description: Bluetooth Core ver 2.19 author: Marcel Holtmann ...

Confirm that the running kernel and the installed version of kernel-headers is the same. You'll now need to recompile your module again for the current kernel: cd rtl8188eu make clean make all make ...

To build a kernel module, you need more than an unpacked kernel source. You need some companion programs and header files generated during the kernel build. The makefile is looking for modpost in the right place but it isn't there yet. Distributions typically ship this in a package called linux-headers-VERSION or kernel-headers-VERSION or something similar. ...
