/usr/include/bits/errno.h assumes that /usr/include/linux/errno.h
always exists. Linus says that /usr/include/linux should contain
constant versions of the kernel headers that reflect the kernel used to

symlink to some directory under /usr/src, which is fine until that
directory changes or goes away. The same problem applies to
