Which kernel version are you referring to? lacks that file.
I see that 2.6.16 is right around the corner.

I would really appreciate it if you could have a look at this.  I have very
little experience in kernel hacking.  Last time I wrote something nontrivial
was about 8 years ago.  If you're not interested, I can try to come up with
a cx88-specific patch, which can be refactored later.
