LKM for multiple kernel versions


I have a kernel module that works for kernel versions < 2.6.20 but there were some changes in that version that cause it to break. I already know how to fix the code but in my source but how can I check the kernel version and swap the code? I dont want to just update the code because I still need it to work for both kernel versions.

Thanks.

Just in case someone else needs to know I figured this out.

Code:
#if (LINUX_VERSION_CODE < KERNEL_VERSION (2, 6, 20))
/*
 *Code for kernel 2.6.20
 */
#else
/*
 *Code for all others
 */
#endif
