I have added the following suggested patch (I am sorry I can't
find/remember who pointed me to this patch) for today (I guess that it
should be merged via the vfs tree as that is what is causing the build
failures ... in which case a real patch should be supplied with
appropriate SOB line). This seems to fix the current problem.
