Hmm. Does it have _LINUX_QUOTA_VERSION defined to 1? You could check
that by eg. adding somewhere to the quota-fs.c code:

#error yes its 1

I think the /1024 is correct for 2.6 kernel, or at least I think several
people have reported it working correctly.. So if 2.4 kernel is quota
version 1, then I'll add #ifdef to not do the /1024 with it.
