Having trouble with spin_lock in omnibook.o kernel module

Hey guys I'm trying to install linux on my Toshiba 1115-s103 and in order to check the battery status and other APM things I need this omnibook kernel module to emulate APM. I used to have Red Hat on because I found a good help guide on getting it running on my notebook, kinda tricky. And omnibook worked fine with it, but I changed over to debian because I prefer debian

Regardless, when I try to compile the omnibook module in debian I get a bunch of errors saying "incompatible type for argument 1 of 'spin_lock'" and spin_unlock. Is there something I'm not compiling in the kernel that I should be?
