Not "forgotten" -- just not fixable within five minutes for those
who do not know the driver... Many drivers aren't very actively
maintained and not everybody has the time to follow every single
pre-patch. For z8530drv (hamradio/scc.c) just drop me a note
"hey, it doesn't even compile anymore" and I'll fix it. However,
I won't even think of touching mkiss.c...

> To fix compiletime i had to do for scc.c and mkiss.c:

It introduces a (small) memory leak for scc.c
I'll fix it ASAP...
