    SubjectRe: [PATCH] 2.4.21-rc1: byteorder.h breaks with __STRICT_ANSI__ defined (trivial)
       From: David Woodhouse <>

    The correct fix is to provide a userland-only version of cdrom.h which
    doesn't use the private kernel types.h. Or a file containing _only_
    those parts which can be shared between kernel and userland, defined
    using standard types such as uint32_t etc.

    Correct in your world only :-)

    Listen, what do you think is the latency every time I add something
    to rtnetlink.h or pfkeyv2.h? Should I just sit and twiddle my thumbs
    waiting for everyone to update their glibc or kernel-headers or
    whatever package before they can compile networking apps using the
    new feature?

    The fact is, until that issue is solved, we have to assume that
    programs are going to include kernel headers and there is nothing
    we can do about it until we provide a better situation than exists

    Therefore, making inclusions of these kinds of headers work from
    userspace is in some sense a requirement.
