SR9800 100Mb usb2.0 buildroot-ondevice test

if someone familiar with the buildroot has one of these usb 100Mb nics... can test this... a build user wants the driver, can't find the kmod...

apparently ' ICS Advent' is one brand using this chipset...

The patch looks good to me, once its functionality can be confirmed (it should work, you've added the necessary module dependencies), it would be ideal to add a short commit message and file it as a pull request or submit it do the mailing list.

I've got one of those SR9800 USB 2.0 nics here.
I found the kmod for the SR9700 but not for the 9800.

If someone could build the kmod I would test and report happily.
