[PATCH] compat.3.7, compat.3.8: Adds missing of.h include

This applies to 3.13-rc2

The compat-3.7.c och compat-3.8.c uses of-functions if supported by the kernel, but there is a missing include for linux/of.h

Thanks for the patch !

If this fixes an issue opening up a bugzilla entry seems like a rather cumbersome way to get the changes merged. Please consider sending the patch with an appropriate Singed-off-by tag if you agree to the Developer Certificate of Origin (same as the Linux kernel) and send it to backports mailing list. Will you close the bug entry yourself?

Makes sense, mailed patch to the mailinglist.
Comment 3 Hauke Mehrtens 2013-12-13 00:18:10 UTC
I already created a patch which adds the missing include, it was added in the last release, see:
https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/backports/backports.git/commit/?id=a9081420811be2a9c7386b4693c5cf1b93b3ae23

This should be fixed in backports-20131206.
