I'm all for 3. I think if done we should do it for all include/scsi at once.
No need for prolonged pain.

[]$ ls /usr/include/scsi
scsi.h
scsi_ioctl.h
scsi_tgt_if.h
sg.h

However I'll have to ask my employers if they can spare me, so any other

TODO:
* Fix up Kernel headers by complying to check_headers
* Test drive some example user-mode applications including glibc itself.
* send patches to glibc
* send patches to Kernel
* Notify distributions.
