The first time that I mounted an Truecrypt encrypted volume, it gave the following error message:

Your system uses an old version of the Linux kernel.

Due to a bug in the Linux kernel, your system may stop responding when
writing data to a TrueCrypt volume. This problem can be solved by upgrading
the kernel to version 2.6.24

Can I get rid of this error, or do I have to do kernel upgrade? If and only if the kernel upgrade is required I am looking for clear instructions.
