This link to a hack came up in the forums:

It recreates the missing function in the kernel headers.

By the way, it will most likely break all GPL modules using it, since
they will now see two definitions.
Whatever :-)

I do not know, I posted it here for others to comment. It is obvious
that people need a working solution, so they hack away, regardless of
licenses.

As far as I can tell, this patch reopens the security hole as well --
please advise anyone who has seen it that it should not be used under
any circumstances.
