I want to add ralink driver to my linux kernel. As explained in the yocto document I enabled the ralink driver using menuconfig. Then copied the .config  as defconfig inside linux kernel source directory /receipe-kernel/linux/files

and added following line to the .bbappend files

FILESEXTRAPATHS_prepend := "${THISDIR}/files:" SRC_URI += "file://defconfig"
and rebuild the kernel. But no ralink driver appeared inside built linux kernel. I could not
find anything named ralink inside /lib/module directory.

Steps I followed:
1. bitbake -c cleansstate linux-variscite
2. bitbake -c menuconfig linux-variscite
3 .applied changes as in the attached image ad saved it as .config
4. copied .config as defconfig to /receipe-kernel/linux/files
5. added .bbappend files as metntioned above
6. bitbake linux-variscite

Though, I could not find anything inside linux-kernel image on my machine.

Can somebody tell me what I am doing wrong?
Why module is not appearing in /lib/module ?

End goal is to install driver on the image...
But since I can not see it on kernel,I am not sure it will be available on the image rootfs.
