[Swan] KLIPS on CentOS 6.5 results in massive compile errors

Trying to compile KLIPS on Red Hat's kernel versions 2.6.32-431 and newer 
gives another error besides the conflicting types for ‘PDE’ that Andreas 
Herz saw.  I also get:

include/linux/proc_fs.h:120: error: conflicting types for 

I presume this is also because of something RH backported from version 3. 
It may involve the define CONFIG_PROC_FS; that appears to be defined when 
proc_fs.h is read on lower kernels but not on the newer ones.

Anyone know what I need to patch?
