[alsa-devel] 'unresolved symbol lock_kernel' on 2.4 kernel

As part of recent testing I attempted to build current 1.0.24 alsa-driver on 
an older machine with 2.4.21-99 kernel .

'configure' and 'make' proceeded uneventfully, but 'rcalsasound start' gave 
following error:-

"Starting sound driver: snd-ice1712 /lib/modules/2.4.21-99-athlon/kernel/
sound/acore/snd.o: unresolved symbol lock_kernel
/lib/modules/2.4.21-99-athlon/kernel/sound/acore/snd.o: unresolved symbol 
/lib/modules/2.4.21-99-athlon/kernel/sound/acore/snd.o: insmod /lib/
modules/2.4.21-99-athlon/kernel/sound/acore/snd.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.21-99-athlon/kernel/sound/acore/snd.o: insmod snd-ice1712 

This does not occur on 1.0.23 (or previous builds that I have tested).

I am aware that there was discussion about ditching 2.2/2.4 support, but my 
understanding was that 1.0.24 should build and work, but may be the last to 
do so - is that correct?

Is there a simple fix for this problem?
