If I understand correctly what you mean, this macro (on one line)

#if LINUX_VERSION_CODE >= KERNEL_VERSION(3, 2, 0) || (LINUX_VERSION_CODE
>= KERNEL_VERSION(2, 6, 42) && LINUX_VERSION_CODE < KERNEL_VERSION(3, 0,
0))

would be equivalent and have the same behavior of this one

#if LINUX_VERSION_CODE >= KERNEL_VERSION(3, 2, 0)

in F-15 as in F-16?
