Hi Greg,

Today's linux-next build (powerpc allyesconfig) failed like this:

In file included from drivers/staging/sxg/sxg.c:77:
drivers/staging/sxg/sxghif.h:859: error: expected '=', ',', ';', 'asm' or '__attribute__' before 'Compilation'
drivers/staging/sxg/sxg.c: In function 'sxg_transmit_packet':
drivers/staging/sxg/sxg.c:1949: error: 'SXG_SGL_BUF_SIZE' undeclared (first use in this function)
drivers/staging/sxg/sxg.c:1958: error: implicit declaration of function 'SXG_SGL_BUFFER'
drivers/staging/sxg/sxg.c:1958: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer without a cast
drivers/staging/sxg/sxg.c: In function 'sxg_mcast_set_mask':
drivers/staging/sxg/sxg.c:2846: warning: format '%llx' expects type 'long long unsigned int', but argument 5 has type 'u64'

I applied the following patch.

Subject: [PATCH] staging: sxg depends on X86

sxghif.h has code that explicitly will not build fo other architecures.
