I added that, and the same for NOPAGE_OOM, but there is more to go:

error: unknown field 'nopage' specified in initializer

The code in question is:
static struct vm_operations_struct sf_vma_ops = {
        .nopage = sf_reg_nopage

I can find the problem but I don't know enough to fix it :-/
Does this look hard to fix, or not so much?

(BTW, Linus's commit <3c18ddd> is the guilty one if you're bored :-)
