PATCH: linux-2.4.1/drivers/md.c unnecessarily referenced unexported symbol name_to_dev_t when md.c is built as module

        md_setup() in linux-2.4.1/drivers/md.c references name_to_kdev_t.
Since name_to_kdev_t is not exported from the kenrel, this causes an
undefined symbol problem when md is built as a module. However,
md_setup is not used when md is a module. So, the correct fix
is to make sure that md_setup() is compiled only when md.c
is not a module. Here is the patch.
