direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Sorry, no offense meant.
Thank you for your time and work.

It seems to have "just worked" for the released debian kernels.
Someone rolling his own kernel may have had a different experience,
when trying to build his modules from there.
But then, she was probably not doing it the debian way ;)

And: Yes. We will try to add some compile time check to actually throw a
compile time _error_ in case this function pointer incompatibility hits.
