Hmm... since "linux/coda.h" will include "uapi/linux/coda.h", it is
necessary to check __linux__ whether defined.

For some old compilers which is still widely used, they really do not
define __linux__, when use these compilers, we need give a necessary
check, if can not pass, need report BUILD_BUG().

e.g. for some versions of openrisc, please ref:
https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/7/30/888. (it is in applying work flow).


Thanks.
