Re: compiling 2.4.0 kernels on potato
Moritz, the patch has subsequently been corrected - you can use the
updates in pub/linux/kernel/testing to get the latest patch. I've
amended the relevant section below.

There are a few other chages required depending on arhcitecture / what
drivers you are compiling so I would get the latest patch from testing
(6, which I'm just about to compile - hopefully it has repaired the
parport_pc problem that the last few have had, although there's a patch
for that too).
