Custom linux kernel for fedora make bzImage error

I have been trying to compile a kernel for diskless booting over a network following this guide.
I have run 'make menuconfig' and then 'make bzImage'. After a period of time the process stops with some errors.

/home/richard/rpmbuild/BUILD/kernel-3.1.fc16/linux-3.1.i686/drivers/staging/brcm80211/brcmsmac/stf.c:99: multiple definition of `brcms_c_stf_ss_algo_channel_get'
drivers/net/built-in.o:/home/richard/rpmbuild/BUILD/kernel-3.1.fc16/linux-3.1.i686/drivers/net/wireless/brcm80211/brcmsmac/stf.c:88: first defined here
make[1]: *** [drivers/built-in.o] Error 1
make: *** [drivers] Error 2
[richard@reoverstreet linux-3.1.i686]$
I think it is a problem with a setting in menuconfig but I'm not sure which one. Any help would be appreciated. I've attached my configuration file "node.log".

Which version of gcc are you using ?

It looks like a bug in the Broadcom wireless driver, do you really need it ? Maybe you can just disable it.
