Compilation problem on linux-2.4.6 with patch 2.4.6pre3

Hi David,

Due to the fact that our application is working on kernel 2.4.5 or
2.4.6, I need to re-compile the kernel on these version. I have chosen
to start with 2.4.6 and understood that I need to include 2.4.6pre3
patch. After I have completed that patch and start to compile the
kernel, I encountered the following errors and hope you can help me to
fix it.

During the compilation for jffs_fm, I encountered the error with
completion.h missing and gc_thread_comp with incomplete type. I hope you
can give me a hand to fix my problem.

Thank you very much in deed. I am looking forward to hear from you soon.

Best regards,
