The cause of this problem is actually that the definition of the basic
NTFS types in fs/ntfs/ntfstypes.h is incompletely replicated in
include/linux/ntfs_fs_i.h. Corrected as follows:

--- linux/include/linux/ntfs_fs_i.h~ Fri Dec 19 15:24:22 1997
+++ linux/include/linux/ntfs_fs_i.h Sun Jan 3 11:25:11 1999
