    I started out with a clean 2.4.13 source tree, applied the
    activate_page patch, and compile as follows:

    make dep clean bzImage
    make modules modules_install

    The command `make modules_install' results in the following output:

    if [ -r ]; then /sbin/depmod -ae -F 2.4.13; fi
    depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.13/kernel/fs/ramfs/ramfs.o
    depmod: activate_page

    Maybe an #include of some header file is missing somewhere?
