config.h is deprecated and removed from current kernel. This should be 
fixed somewhere (build scripts, makefile or..?). Your temporary fix is ok.

Most likely new qt1010 kernel module is not build, because of it is 
disabled by config. Try "make distclean" and then "make config" and 
ensure that qt1010 module is selected (Quantek QT1010 silicon tuner).
I don't know why it does not print proper warning message (driver 
disabled by Kconfig) from qt1010.h file. Could someone who knows better 
this Kconfig stuff check this issue?

Fedora Core 6 and it works :) I have still same config.h issue...
