I took this from kernel menuconfig for quota v1:

This quota format was (is) used by kernels earlier than 2.4.22. If you have
quota working and you don't want to convert to new quota format say Y here.

Kernel 2.4 has indeed quota version 1:

quota-fs.c:333:2: #error yes its 1
make: *** [quota-fs.lo] Fehler 1

I think I will update to 2.6 soon...
