getting FUSD compiled with current kernels

I'm trying to build FUSD [1] against current kernels [2.6.22]. I get errors

I tried looking into it but not being a kernel hacker i must admit i didn't
even find out where sysfs_dentry is defined (so i can make the type
complete). Or whether this would even be the correct way to fix it..

My goal is to hack up oss2jack [3] to use ALSA pcm devices.. And a later goal
is to create a virtual ALSA soundcard [which would multiplex access to a real
non hw-mixing capable soundcard] to finally end the dmix software mixing woes
linux users have to endure for the last years :)

I don't expect you to fix it for me. I would just be glad about infos on where
to get more infos enabling me to fix this :) Of course the more concise and
practical the advice the better :)
