Problem being that user space programs are not supposed to use the kernel
headers - they're supposed to use the glibc headers anyway. In fact the
latest kernel source headers don't work in userspace period. And the user
space glibc 'kernel' headers are released and distributed seperately and
contain much less code than the actual kernel kernel headers.
