Subjectkobject.h makes lilo compile break

When I'm compiling lilo on a machine with kernel 2.5.54, I get the following

gcc -c -O2 -Wall -g `( if [ -r $ROOT/etc/lilo.defines ]; then cat
$ROOT/etc/lilo.defines; else
ION -DUNIFY; fi ) | sed 's/-D/-DLFC_/g'` `[ -r /usr/include/asm/boot.h ] &&
echo -DHAS_BOOT_H` `cat mylilo.h` lilo.c
In file included from /usr/include/linux/kobject.h:10,
from /usr/include/linux/device.h:28,
from /usr/include/linux/genhd.h:15,
from common.h:20,
from lilo.c:25:
/usr/include/linux/list.h:323:2: warning: #warning "don't include kernel
headers in userspace"
In file included from /usr/include/linux/device.h:28,
from /usr/include/linux/genhd.h:15,
from common.h:20,
from lilo.c:25:
/usr/include/linux/kobject.h:20: field `entry` has incomplete type
/usr/include/linux/kobject.h:24: confused by earlier errors, bailing out
make: *** [lilo.o] Error 1
rm temp2.img

As far as I got it, it's the kobject.h which causes the error as it includes
list.h which can't be included in userspace, but in the end the genhd.h
should work so can compile lilo.

Can someone help me how to solve that?

Cheers, Simon
