It should suffice to create a file "cc110x_params.h" with the correct
SPI/pin parameters and put it in your include path, then add "USEMODULE
+= cc110x gnrc_netdev2 gnrc_cc110x" to your makefile, in addition to the
other gnrc modules. I use gnrc_networking as a base and just add those

Check "boards/msba2/include/cc110x_params.h" for an example parameters
file, but make sure to adjust the settings.

Last time I tried there was a problem with 6lowpan IP header
compression, so if you can't communicate between nodes using IPv6, try
disabling iphc (by adding "DISABLE_MODULE += gnrc_sixlowpan_iphc" to the
application's Makefile).

Have fun!
