Yes, I realized that soon afterward. Sorry about that. After applying
the patch to 2.1.20, I got numerous warnings such as:

scsi_syms.c:41: warning: parameter names (without types) in function declaration
scsi_syms.c:41: warning: data definition has no type or storage class

They appeared numerous times in that file, and numerous times in
namei.c, ksyms.c, ide.c, md.c, serial.c, ppp.c, slhc.c, fatfs_syms.c,
msdosfs_syms.c, procfs_syms.c, netsyms.c, and i386_ksyms.c as well. Then
the compilation failed with:

kernel/kernel.o: In function `init_modules':
kernel/kernel.o(.text+0x45c1): undefined reference to `__stop___ksymtab'
kernel/kernel.o(.text+0x45c6): undefined reference to `__start___ksymtab'
