    The idea was to make a point, that #include <linux/xxx.h> really is
    a kernel/kernel aware application thing only. It ought to reduce the
    number of people who try to include kernel only stuff without knowing
    that it is a nono most of the time.

    It isn't all that hard to add the following lines to the Makefiles
    for an application that needs the kernel includes:


    And then standardise on /usr/src/linux as the directory where the kernel
    includes for the current kernel reside on a distribution. Those who
    compile multiple kernels on the same system should be savvy enough to
    do "KERNELDIR=/usr/src/my-kernel/linux make" or modify the Makefile.
