Fixes a build issue on Debian's 2.6.29 kernels.


Necessary for newer RHEL/CentOS 5.x kernels.

How to apply these patches

The easiest way to install patches is to use the hsfconfig --patch command in a root shell with the latest version of the HSF modem driver installed. If the machine doesn't have an active Internet connection, you can use the hsfconfig --patch file.patch command instead, where file.patch is a patch file downloaded from this page. Patching is currently only supported with the TAR package format.

Advanced users can use the patch utility to patch the software instead of using the hsfconfig --patch command.
