What you need to do to "properly" fix this is add a lines like

#if LINUX_VERSION_CODE > KERNEL_VERSION ( 2, 3, X)
	foo.de = bar;
#endif

around the two offending code sections, and find the appropriate kernel version
where this entry was added.  This can be done by looking at the kernel CVS:
                http://lxr.linux.no/

(best to start by checking if it is in 2.4.0, or a recent addition, and then
going back through 2.3.X kernels).

Send the resulting patch back to the list.

Cheers, Andreas
