...Mosberger!! When Andrew asked me to sign off on David's rework of that
code, I did so with the caveat that it be tested on i386 before being
accepted, and evidently it never was.

The #include is the part of this patch that matters, so the #ifdef below
works. (Frankly, I have never seen the rationale for conditionalizing this
code on AT_SYSINFO_EHDR rather than just FIXADDR_USER_START. But David
wanted it that way and Andrew approved it.) The rest of the patch removes
gratuitous duplication due to some strange aversion to concision in the
presence of #ifdef, the kind that is all too common, utterly pointless, and
error prone.
