Here is a patch that should solve the issue, for now...

This patch should fix the build for 2.6.19, without breaking the build
against prior versions, however, we are losing the kernel configuration.
That's why I am not about to push this into any tree -- 2.6.19 is still
a development kernel.

I haven't built 2.6.19 yet, so I don't yet know what to do about that...
Even still, we're going to have to do this in such a way that
<linux/config.h> is still used for < 2.6.19, while using the new method
for newer kernels...

Anyway, let me know how this works for you.
