I tried building as many modules as possible on frv, and this was the
only driver that failed this way.

Another possibility would be to let this driver depend on ISA_DMA_API
(similar to e.g. SCSI_EATA).

Sorry for being lazy, but touching X architectures for fixing the
compiliation of a driver whose hardware will anyway most likely never
be used on this architecture is IMHO not worth the effort...
