The declaration of:

struct file;

in sysctl.h is a bit counter intuitive isn't it?

I avoided the problem with:

--- md.c 2000/11/12 23:00:49 1.1
+++ md.c 2000/11/12 23:00:53
@@ -30,8 +30,8 @@

#include <linux/module.h>
#include <linux/config.h>
-#include <linux/sysctl.h>
#include <linux/raid/md.h>
+#include <linux/sysctl.h>
#include <linux/raid/xor.h>
#include <linux/devfs_fs_kernel.h>

It is certainly arguable that a better fix is to add some extra
includes to sysctl.h, but the "struct file;" bothers me.
