    Strictly speaking, you should not include standard headers from kernel
    provided headers, and the problems would be similar to those before
    your patch: anyone who currently doesn't include <stddef.h> but has
    their own definition of NULL will still get a conflict from including
    a kernel header that includes <linux/stddef.h>.
