Oops, this seems to be my fault. Find the fix below.

As I stated in the original commit, this was tested with 'make
headers_check', so I can only guess that it's a merge fall-out.

Adrian Bunk pointed it out in my original submission, which is
why it was explicitly tested... But I just tested it again, and
why doesn't make headers_check catch it?

Sorry :-/
