Hrm, I see. Here is why I missed it: I was expecting this #include to be
added at the top of rcupdate.h instead of being added in the middle like
you do here. Would it be acceptable to move this #include to the top of
the file, or is there some other obscure reason for not doing so ? (I
feel the temperature is suddenly rising) ;-)

Thanks,

Mathieu
