OK. There was postings here about applying it to where it worked 
without a hitch.

I do not know about how to make such patches but it would seem that they 
should not delete stuff not relevant to their scope. Besides a new #include 
to that tick.h file, the #define SA_ .... stuff comes to mind. These are no 
longer used in the kernel but caused no harm being kept. It may take time for  
all modules that may be compiled against the kernel sources/headers to 
dispense with them.
