It seems that somewhere between 2.6.6 and 2.6.9 the backing_dev_info
struct has lost the memory_backed element so we get the following compile
error: unknown field `memory_backed' specified in initializer
make: *** [default] Error 2
make: *** [kmod] Error 2
I've spent a little time investigating what happened, and, well, I'm not
sure. Currently I just comment it out, but I don't know if that is the
right thing to do.
