The parameters of the function is not the same and it seems stupid to
also ifdef the list of arguments :).

I can at least create a new function with

    if ( verify(&dummy_xsm_ops) )
        printk("%s could not verify dummy_xsm_ops structure.\n",
        ret = -EIO;
        goto err;

    xsm_ops = &dummy_xsm_ops;
