XFS patches and 2.4.20-ben10

I've been using xfs for several months and I wanted to apply the
current devel xfs patches to the 2.4.20-ben10 kernel and ran into
a name clash in include/linux/sysctl.h.

In the enumeration of the CTL_VM names, the patch is trying to insert
when there already exists a

VM_HEAP_STACK_GAP=14 doesn't exist in the stock 2.4.20 kernel.

Is there a preferred way to work around this until the problem is
solved? I assume that changing VM_PAGEBUF=14 to 15 would mean a
recompile of all the xfs utils as well.

Since there seem to be several patches to the 2.4 kernel
series with different values for VM_HEAP_STACK_GAP would it be
safe to assume I can change that? (sorry for the my lack of
understanding of what is going on here).
