The net-wireless/at76c503a module requires linux/config.h from the kernel source that was depreciated and removed.

Try this patch, I am not sure if its affected by the work queue changes with 2.6.20 - and I don't have the hardware handy, but I figured I would write the version check patch at least - this patch should apply cleanly to beta1, and also work with kernels 2.6.19 and below (at least)
I did something similar by hand to make it compile for me, but I am trying out your patch and cant get it to apply...
I tried to use this in the ebuild:
I'm sure it is my fault but it is complaining that it can't find the files to patch.
I also tried to have the ebuild apply the patch and failed. The ebuild seems to completely bypass unpack(), but I don't know how. I wonder if it has anything to do with the linux-mod eclass. But I looked at the eclass code and didn't find anything that seems to override the default behavior of unpack(). I was going to submit the bug upstream, since that's where I think it belongs, but ... I don't have an account at berlios. Yeah, I know. Laziness kicked in.
The patch easly works when i do it by hand, if someone could add it to the tree it would be nice :)
I've added a bug report for a CVS ebuild (http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=173034) It compiles and runs with my 2.6.20 kernel. The only thing broken now is Xorg :(
thank you patch and cvs ebuild in portage
