Hi Andrew,

Mike has forwarded the patch to the stable kernel team. (Thanks!)

Likely it will be fixed in 2.6.24.5 then.

To build a vanilla kernel is still a very easy task, but there are
distribution specific helper scripts and customs.

The real problem, that could appear, is that dependencies on other
utilities are not resolved on your current distribution version anymore
and you run into some circular dependencies, not easy to resolve and
then you must know what you are doing exactly or upgrade.

If a 2.6.24 is available for your current stuff, just install it and see
the missing. If you then install the kernel source for it, we can apply
the patch also there and build a new kernel.

Cheers,
Hermann
