Where is header file, to edit? 12.04...

edit: Looks like I didn't give enough info for anyone to help; I'm following directions for a solution here

Title asks it all here folks; I got an EXPECTED error doing compilation, and the next step calls for : (and is the code in RED below correct, to copy / paste into header file)

Now this will probably give the following error:

error: redefinition of kref_get_unless_zero
include/linux/kref.h:47:32: note: previous definition of kref_get_unless_zero was here

In this case, open the header file, and find the entire block of the function:

static inline int __must_check kref_get_unless_zero(struct kref *kref)
return atomic_add_unless(&kref->refcount, 1, 0);

Next comment out the entire block of the function using line comment (put // in front of each line) or block comment in c as,

/*static inline int __must_check kref_get_unless_zero(struct kref *kref)
return atomic_add_unless(&kref->refcount, 1, 0);

Thanks here........................

I'd take a guess at ./scripts/driver-select ath9k.
