Yep, this is caused by the great MIN/MAX macro change in the 2.4.9 stock
kernel.   Alan didn't think it was a good idea, so his AC series kernels
still use the old style MIN/MAX macros.  Unfortunately, the way the patches
are currently generated, any kernel above 2.4.9 is assumed to have the new

I'm not sure what the best way to fix this is.  You possibly could go in and
manually change the kernel version in the PATCHES/Makefile file to be
2.4.8-ac9; this shouldn't change anything but which versions of the patches
are put into the patch and the patch name, but it may not work.  I would try
this first...if that doesn't work, we'll have to start looking at
