I'm attempting to re-compile a patched brcmfmac driver I have made myself. However, compilation has failed even after I have copied all the /include files into the usr/include folders.

The following compilation is done with the source itself. It does not contain any changes.

The error message is as follows:

alan@ubuntu:~/Desktop/linux/drivers/net/wireless/broadcom/brcm80211/brcmfmac$ make -C /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build M=$(pwd) modules

Majority of the files were able to compile, this is one of the remaining few that wasn't able to.

I believe the main reason that it is unable to compile is because SDIO_DEVICE_ID_BROADCOM_43364 is not defined, which makes me wonder if I have the correct kernel source installed (repo was from https://github.com/torvalds/linux)

If anyone could identify the main reason behind the failed compilation I would be grateful.

Thank you!
