Thanks for reporting this. I have not tested Crypto API version of Host
AP crypto with Linux 2.4, so this was not noticed earlier. I added a
backwards compatibility code for defining offset_in_page to the CVS.
This seems to be compiling without errors, but I did not test whether it
actually works with Linux 2.4.x.
