In short: Kernel like for example kernel-2.6.20-1.3066.fc7 are in

breaks outside kernel modules sometimes; just yesterday I saw a patch in
3rd party repo applied that did this...
+-#if LINUX_VERSION_CODE < KERNEL_VERSION(2,6,21)
++#if LINUX_VERSION_CODE < KERNEL_VERSION(2,6,20)
Those issues happen when you ship a kernel which is neither 2.6.20 nor
2.6.21. They don't magically go away if you call it 2.6.21 when in fact
it's only 2.6.21-rc1.
