I tried to compile kdbus on opensuse 12.2 using kernel 3.4 and got the
following compile errors:

ralf at yyy:src/kdbus> make
make -C /lib/modules/3.4.67-1.gc5211a6-default/build M=/home/ralf/src/kdbus
make[1]: Entering directory
  CC [M]  /home/ralf/src/kdbus/bus.o
/home/ralf/src/kdbus/bus.c:15:29: fatal error: linux/hashtable.h: Datei
oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
compilation terminated.
make[4]: *** [/home/ralf/src/kdbus/bus.o] Fehler 1
make[3]: *** [_module_/home/ralf/src/kdbus] Fehler 2
make[2]: *** [sub-make] Fehler 2
make[1]: *** [all] Fehler 2

Is there a minimum kernel version requirement ?
