Subject: acx-20060215 for etch

pci.c needed a fix for etch..

I added the includes for utsrelease.h as they were needed for the 
declaration of UTS_RELEASE in debian etch...

as the acx tarball downloaded into debian etch:

debian:/usr/src/acx-20060215# make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd`
make: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.18-3-686'
CC [M] /usr/src/acx-20060215/pci.o
In file included from /usr/src/acx-20060215/acx.h:2,
from /usr/src/acx-20060215/pci.c:55:

after researching and discovering these declarations had been put into 
separate includes.h for etch,
I entered pci.c and in the includes header added the line

#include <linux/utsrelease.h>

and it compiled beautifully.
I haven't touched source code for over 12 years.
Totally made my day.
