Speaking as the person who I expect most frequently tries that I 
wouldn't worry about it - it's easy enough to see what's happened and
there will still be errors at link time even with the extern.  I'd
certainly want to see the Kconfig fix as well, independantly of this.

That's good news - previously it would fail to build at all.  What sort
of breakage are you seeing (and what was the version you used when you
developed the driver)?

[Your MUA isn't doing word wrapping, BTW.]
