Compilation [against] fails with

buildfarm linux-2.6.20 # make
CHK include/linux/version.h
CHK include/linux/utsrelease.h
CHK include/linux/compile.h
CC kernel/sched.o
In file included from kernel/sched.c:850:
kernel/sched_fair.c:49: error: sysctl_sched_nr_latency causes a section type
make[1]: *** [kernel/sched.o] Error 1
make: *** [kernel] Error 2

-const_debug unsigned int sysctl_sched_nr_latency __read_mostly = 20;
+const_debug unsigned int sysctl_sched_nr_latency = 20;

seems solve that issue but i'm not sure this is the right thing to do or
not :)
