    Introduced by 7ef88ad5 (BUILD_BUG_ON: make it handle more cases), the
    whole BUILD_BUG_ON stuff should be hidden behind #ifdef __KERNEL__, but
    it's pretty harmless.

    That's actualy a false positive, the header defines a prototype for the
    quotactl() syscall.

    That looks indeed bogus, there is no sdla() syscall.

    As Vitaliy wrote, this is a leftover after 43a9907.

    Nevertheless, these errors are pretty harmless, the prototypes do not
    break parsing the header when compiling userspace programs.
