In order to enable the logger module (i.e. Android log driver),
the Kernel configuration has "CONFIG_ANDROID_LOGGER" option.
You can enable it using "make munuconfig" or edit .config file by yourself.
(Find "ANDROID_LOGGER" in munuconfig using "/" option.)

The logger module located in 'drivers/staging/android' of Linux Kernel
so check whether the the logger.c file in this directory is complied or 
not after building the ivi Kernel.
