Hi, it's a linux headers bug, r14852 workarounded the problem for some
kernel headers (2.6.22 at least, later kernels have been fixed
upstream), but I think there is still some version which can't
compile, maybe linux 2.6.21, while previous versions work, and I'm not
sure that the headers check is able to detect the problem.

Anyway I won't insist on this patch, unless I'll come up with
something better.
