Well, I thought that the binary part of the bundle Intel provides is 
pretty much the same, only the the code that wrap around it and does the 
interfacing with the kernel should be changed according to 2.6. But I 
must admit that I can't tell more for I lack skills in the kernel 
internals area.

I did compile the thing, changing here and there the headers, but, 
obviously, the resulting object file didn't work, as I was expecting..

Now that's a funny thing, I'll have a look at it.

Thank you
