You don't have to worry about this message - everthing will work as
before even with this warning. You just don't get the extra feature of
not trashing your buffer caches when recording a movie or when viewing a
stored one.

To have an advantage of this new feature you will have to get a newer
glibc and maybe a newer kernel. But sorry - no idea when they started to
fully support posix_fadvise().
