SubjectRe: [PATCH] 32-bit UID support for 2.3.30pre6 (important update)

Hmm... well, this means that we will have to do something like the
following in include/linux/types.h:

/* libc5 pulls its definition of uid_t out of this file, so it can never
change when included by non-kernel code */
#ifdef __KERNEL__
typedef __kernel_uid32_t uid_t;
typedef __kernel_gid32_t gid_t;
#else
typedef __kernel_uid_t uid_t;
typedef __kernel_gid_t gid_t;
#endif /* __KERNEL__ */

Thanks for pointing this out,
