At a minimum please fix the checker to work.

It doesn't recurse, all of the .h files include drm.h, which includes
linux/types.h, this is how its meant to work. If the checker does
recurse then doesn't define __linux__ then fix that. This isn't a bug in
the drm header files.

We copy these files as is into a userspace that is shared with FreeBSD,
the ifdef is the minimum down from about 10 ifdefs 2-3 years ago
concession we've made.

Dave.
