    There's no way user should ever include the linux internal stddef.h.

    And quite frankly, kernel-external definitions of NULL have
    traditionally been pure sh*t (ie plain "0" without the cast to a
    pointer), so I'm not entirely convinced about this patch.

    So what is the *actual* thing this helps with?
