Well, linux/module.h -> asm/module.h -> linux/elf.h. Although if you
use #define instead of typedef you can break the last link. Feel free
to send a patch to split it into moduleload.h or something, but I
think it'll look tiny.

But IMHO the nameclash needs to be fixed *anyway*, not hacked around,
or someone else will run over it one day. AFAICT, changing
fs/binfmt_elf.c and elf.h to AT_RGID is the simplest. Both should be
mildly chastised for using a prefix like AT_ publically.

Rusty.
