Yep, basically what happened is Linus and some other guy decided to change
min and max to have three arguments instead of two, and did so without
telling anyone in 2.4.9.  Pretty nice, huh?  Anyway, Alan Cox has refused to
incorporate the changes 'cause it breaks almost every driver out there. See
the thread starting at
http://uwsg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0108.2/0117.html on the linux
kernel mailing list for more details.

This problem is fixed in the CVS and in 1.0.1-rc1.
