[CentOS] wan hdlc_ppp and IPv6

I can successfully build the driver modules; hdlc, dlci, syncppp, and lmc
from the 2.6.18-128.1.14 kernel source rpm, and have managed to
create a 'wan kmod' rpm. It all works fine for IPv4, but now I need
IPv6 for ppp connections, which doesn't work for me.
I think I'll need to back port Krzysztof Halasa's 'ppp for generic hdlc'
patches to the 2.6.18-128.1.14.el5 kernel sources.
Has anyone worked on this? I have tried simply overwriting the
drivers/net/wan directory with corresponding directory from
more recent (188.8.131.52, 2.6.30) vanilla kernel source, but I get errors:
CC [M] drivers/net/wan/hdlc.o
drivers/net/wan/hdlc.c:39:31: error: net/net_namespace.h: No such file or
drivers/net/wan/hdlc.c: In function ‘hdlc_rcv’:

drivers/net/wan/hdlc.c: In function ‘hdlc_proto_start’:
drivers/net/wan/hdlc.c:85: error: invalid type argument of ‘->’
and so on.
Where is the best starting point for getting these changes back-ported. I
I need post-'ppp for generic hdlc' but pre-'net-namespace'. Is this
Thanks for any help/advice.
