    | Actually, don't even do the vm_file thing at all, just do something lile
    |
    | #ifndef KERNEL_VER_2_1
    | vma->vm_inode = inode;
    | inode->i_count++;
    | #endif
    |
    | as the generic mmap stuff does the vm_file initialization for you too.

    Is support for older kernels (pre 2.2.0) needed at all anymore?
    I do not know if the 3dfx module made it to the kernel yet,
    but I am willing to strip off the code for the older kernels
    and test it for the lastest 2.2.x kernel (I am still running
    2.1.131 ;).

    The last version I wrote is Dev3Dfx-2.5.tar.gz
    (see http://www.xs4all.nl/~carlo17/3dfx/index.html)

    Did someone already add improvements to that version?
    If so, then I am not aware if it.
