    SubjectRe: [PATCH]: problem: pc_keyb.h
    Hello!

    pc_keyb.h is a kernel include, thus it uses the kernel set of types
    which unfortunately collides badly with the types used in user space.

    The best solution is to create your own include and copy the
    relevant parts of pc_keyb.h there.

    BTW what exactly do you plan to do? Sending keyboard controller
    or mouse controller commands from user space is probably very
    dangerous as it's going to collide with the commands sent by the
    kernel.

    Have a nice fortnight
