Kernel 2.4.12 compile fails in ieee1284_ops.c

I just d/l'ed the late-night bug-fix release, and was expecting a normal
compile, when this wrench was thrown into the works:

ieee1284_ops.c: In function `ecp_forward_to_reverse':
ieee1284_ops.c:365: `IEEE1284_PH_DIR_UNKNOWN' undeclared (first use in
this function)
ieee1284_ops.c:365: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
ieee1284_ops.c:365: for each function it appears in.)
ieee1284_ops.c: In function `ecp_reverse_to_forward':
ieee1284_ops.c:397: `IEEE1284_PH_DIR_UNKNOWN' undeclared (first use in
this function)
make[3]: *** [ieee1284_ops.o] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux/drivers/parport'
make[2]: *** [first_rule] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux/drivers/parport'
make[1]: *** [_subdir_parport] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux/drivers'
make: *** [_dir_drivers] Error 2

Yes, I'm using RedHat (7.1), and yes, their compilers suck, but this one
hasn't given me problems with kernel compiles in the past. I propose
somewhat of a one-liner patch to fix this (it's attached).
