Subjectlinux-2.4.0-test11 and sysklogd-1.3-31

sysklogd 1.3-31 no longer compiles using the latest headers in test11.

Strictly speaking this isn't a kernel bug...

sysklogd's ksym_mod.c includes <linux/module.h>

In test11, <linux/module.h> added struct inter_module_entry. Its
first member is "struct list_head list;". This necessitates the
inclusion of <linux/list.h>.

The trouble is that <linux/list.h> is almost completely protected by
#ifdef __KERNEL__.

sysklogd, obviously, doesn't compile with __KERNEL__ so the struct
inter_module_entry declaration is impossible and the compilation
fails.

It's not clear to me who's code needs changing so I'm sending both to
linux-kernel and to some of the people that have the misfortune of
being listed on the sysklogd man page.
