If symlinks are set up:

/usr/include/linux/blk.h

#ifndef _BLK_H
#define _BLK_H

[SNIPPED...]

#ifndef CURRENT
#define CURRENT blkdev_entry_next_request(&blk_dev[MAJOR_NR].request_queue.queue_head)
#endif

#endif /* _BLK_H */

Otherwise:

../linux-n.n.n/include/linux/blk.h


FYI. To find things in the future, do:
cd /usr/include/linux
grep WHAT_TO_FIND *.h | more
cd ../asm
grep WHAT_TO_FIND *.h | more

Penguin : Linux version 2.4.1 on an i686 machine (797.90 BogoMips).

I was going to compile a list of innovations that could be
attributed to Microsoft. Once I realized that Ctrl-Alt-Del
was handled in the BIOS, I found that there aren't any.
