I am also using debian and I hope the debianized version will be available

I did try to get ctx-12 to apply against 2.4.19-rc3. You need to be carefull,
as there are some changes apart from the 2 rejects (if I'm not mistaken the
numbers for the kernel calls need to be adjusted).
Apart from that, there have been changes in the reiserfs code, when the patch
is applied, reiserfs doesn't compile anymore. The changes are related to the
immutable flags, and shouldn't be too hard to fix, but I don't use reiserfs,
so I didn't bother.
I have a patch (it was made for 2.4.19-rc3, but applies to 2.4.19 as well)
that works for me. I would rather not send it to the list, because it would be
better if someone reviewed the changes first, but if there is enough interest,
I can send it...
