In order to test the patch linked to in the following post: https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues/29#issuecomment-6884170 I need to compile a custom kernel for my Pi.
To do this, I followed the steps laid out here: http://elinux.org/RPi_Kernel_Compilation#Ubuntu_Linux
This all worked fine and I was able to boot my Pi, however now my wireless adapter has ceased to work (worked previously by adding ath9k and ath9k_htc to my rc.conf) and dmesg tells me: "Loading user specified modules: FAIL". Taking a look at lsmod I can see that no (?!) modules are loaded!
I think this has to do with the kernel not having the correct paths to the modules.
So my question is, how do I build a kernel with the above mentioned patch for Arch Linux on my Pi?
I'm currently building on Ubuntu, but I could setup a virtual x86 arch Linux if that would make things easier.
