Thanks, but it looks like a false alarm to me, for reasons below.

- eth_dev_attach_secondary is not defined in this patch, it's defined
(and used) in the first patch.
- eth_dev_attach_secondary is actually defined; The report even shows
it fails to build with gcc: the gcc build passes on my dev box.
Honestly, I seldom trusted the build reports from STV.
