Actually no, you _should_ be able to use different kernel and tools
together _provided_ that the IOP version is the same.  Conversely,
no changes should be made to the tools which break the IOP verion
(either by forcing it to change under 2.4 kernels if it is not needed,
or by changing the data structures and NOT updating the IOP version).

The min/max issues are easily fixed (and have been reverted in 2.4.10).
Also, the tool version and kernel version SHOULD NOT need to match
exactly (that's what IOP is for).

Infomation about whether the coredump is in user space or a kernel oops
would be helpful.  Also, there is a known issue about the "inline"
functions, which may not have been fixed yet (it is a compiler bug).
