You can fix the mace_set_timeout() function arguments by having
a helper function that simply wraps around it and provides the
second expection of argument types.

Your patch is also wrong, it's missing a lot of netdev_ops
entries that are implicitly obtained via alloc_etherdev(),

	.ndo_change_mtu		= eth_change_mtu,
	.ndo_set_mac_address 	= eth_mac_addr,
	.ndo_validate_addr	= eth_validate_addr,
