Subject2.4.9 compiler warnings & errors NTFS
Okay I tried kernel the patch to 2.4.9 (I applied 2.4.8 patch on top of
a 2.4.7 kernel then 2.4.9 patch).

The NTFS module wont build in 2.4.9. It seems that there is a missing
include file in fs/ntfs/unistr.c . After I added

#include <linux/fs.h>

to the file it seems to have fixed the problem. (patch at bottom of
mail)

The following is the error before I added the include:

make[3]: Circular passthrough.h <- hwaccess.h dependency dropped.

This is the error after I added the include. (It compiled too)
