raid5 wont compile for me:

gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/local/src/linux-2.1.79/include -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -D__SMP__ -pipe -fno-strength-reduce -m486 -malign-loops=2 -malign-jumps=2 -malign-functions=2 -DCPU=586 -D__SMP__ -DMODULE -DMODVERSIONS -include /usr/local/src/linux-2.1.79/include/linux/modversions.h -c -o raid5.o raid5.c
raid5.c: In function `raid5_run':
raid5.c:1375: too many arguments to function `__get_free_pages_R5b3b8f78'
