To All,

A quick update:

I really have no update.  I have been attempting to get to the point where
I can test the newly built module, but I can not get my system to the point
where I can try the new module.  I was able to compile it, but when I
attempted to load the new module, I get the following error:

# /usr/bin/grep uftdi /var/log/messages
Nov 12 08:14:39 gentoo kernel: KLD uftdi.ko: depends on kernel - not
available or version mismatch
#

I then updated my system and source code, now the kernel will not compile.
I searched and found a few posts on one of the FreeBSD forums, which stated
the problems might be resolved by "buildworld" first, then "buildkernel",
"install kernel", reboot single-user and "installworld".  After the latest
update and reboot, "buildworld" fails.  I don't want to move on to
"buildkernel" until I can resolve the "buildworld" failure first.

No updates needed to update system to 10.2-RELEASE-p7.

Made sure my source code is proper and up to date:

In between each failed "buildworld" attempt, I have followed the
instructions for resetting /usr/obj in the handbook in the "buildworld" (
https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/makeworld.html)
section.  Here's where "buildworld" fails:

---------------------------

[-Werror,-Wtentative-definition-incomplete-type]
static struct cargs arglist;
                    ^
---------------------------

I assume my issues are outside of the scope of this specific list, but I
can not test the simple changes to the uftdi.ko module if I can't get the
module to build and load into the running kernel.

Here's my current kernel (don't be deceived by the hostname, it's
FreeBSD... the hardware used to run Gentoo and I was too lazy to change the
hostname/IP on my internal DNS server - which is also running FreeBSD):

# /usr/bin/uname -a
FreeBSD gentoo.chicken.fish 10.2-RELEASE-p7 FreeBSD 10.2-RELEASE-p7 #0: Mon
Nov  2 14:19:39 UTC 2015
r...@amd64-builder.daemonology.net:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC
 amd64
#

What am I missing, or can someone please point me in the right direction of
how to successfully "buildworld" so I can then, build a GENERIC kernel and
install everything?  BTW, I for the kernel build file, I simply made a copy
of GENERIC, with a new name and no other modifications.

Regards,

-Burton
