    SubjectProblem with include/linux/fs.h vs. glibc
    Hi !

    Sorry if this have already been the cause of a flamewar on the list, but...

    I need to compile an app with the 2.4 kernel headers & glibc (our stable
    glibc on PPC is based on 2.1.3). However, the compiler is barking on a
    change done in 2.4 version of include/linux/fs.h:

    The 2.2.x version didn't include <linux/string.h> and all was fine.

    The 2.4.x version does include <linux/string.h> and this is causing gcc
    to bark because of conflicts with glibc headers (glibc seems to #define
    some of the prototypes defined in linux/string.h, causing various parse

    So what is the solution ?

    - removing the #include <linux/string.h> from linux/fs.h ?
    - moving it in a #ifdef __KERNEL__ part of the file ?
    - protect linux/string.h itself with #ifdef __KERNEL__ ?
    - fix glibc ? (how ? I mean, it's legal to include linux/fs.h from userland,
    but linux/string.h is obviously not meant to be exported out of the kernel)
