make bzImage error

I am having problems compliling my kernel. When I type "make bzImage", I get the following error after a while:

drivers/usb/usbdrv.o(.text+0x138a4): In function `hidinput_hid_event':
: undefined reference to `input_event'
drivers/usb/usbdrv.o(.text+0x13921): In function `hidinput_hid_event':

make: *** [vmlinux] Error 1

I have reduced the ammount of usb items that are included in the kernel through the menuconfig with no effect. I am at a loss for what the next step is.

what kernel are you compiling ?
i forget what release it was i think it was one of the 2.4.x releases
but if you go int the kernel configuration under the usb support
and disable the /dev/hiddev, i think it will bypass this error, or i think
if you compile usb support as modules, it will also bypass this error ...

on the other end of this, if you are trying to compile 2.4.x series,, maybe
move up to the 2.6 series. ..
