I've fixed the errors that I can in my tree. The majority of the errors
you are seeing are ones that are caused by api changes in other trees
that I can't fix up now in -staging until those changes go into Linus's

Which is fine, I'll fix them up when I push them to Linus, so you don't
have to worry about them.

Some of the other warnings are just due to horrible code, like the
drivers/staging/otus/ driver that has some looney macros that cause lots
of build warnings. Those will take more work and I'm hoping that the
community of developers that have been helping out with the staging tree
will help there.
