For the easy fix you can comment out delete the parts which does not compile. 
Probably you will not lose a feature you need (the offending parts are for 
the support of the safedisk patch).

For a proper fix you have to ifndef out the parts using features which are not 
present in 2.2. Or even provide an implementation which works with 2.2
