 That depends on your Linux kernel configuration.  Do a 'make linux26-
menuconfig' and enable the drivers you require.

 On embedded systems, the distro-style of enabling all possible drivers in the 
kernel often doesn't work.  So the kernel configuration is typcally rather 
minimal.  However, for many evaluation kets a board-specific defconfig exists 
in the kernel.  You can select it with the BR2_LINUX_KERNEL_DEFCONFIG 
buildroot configuration option.  Some evaluation kits also have a predefined 
buildroot setup: look in the configs/ directory.
