2.4 direct_IO API changing?

I see in 2.4.22-BK-latest:

> - int (*direct_IO)(int, struct inode *, struct kiobuf *, unsigned long, int);
> + int (*direct_IO)(int, struct file *, struct kiobuf *, unsigned long, int

Should this really be changing in the middle of a stable series?

I realize that vendor's are already shipping this difference, but
still... it's a bit of an abrupt midseries change that can potentially
break working code.
