kernel, it is defined from RHEL5.9.

the furture. It is introduced from linux-2.6.39. For RHEL6, it is defined
from RHEL6.4.

This patchset do some compatiblity work for these two functions, and
replace strict_strtoul which is depleted from linux-3.18.

  Adjust pci_num_vf() introduced RHEL version number.

kni, and xen_dom0. Add compat.h in kni and xen_dom0 for compatible with
older kernels.

  Merge these two patch in one patchset.
  Compatible with old kernel for kstrtoul.
  Compatible with RHEL6 for pci_num_vf.
