The userspace program is actually a test which checks that uapi headers
compile alone because several headers are not compiling at all and/or
require special tricks. The test is available here:

http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=150203944104544&w=2

I have tried that approach before but then:

For some subsystems like fuse the above message was not enough and they
are including stdint.h in userspace. What shall we do with this old
scsi header file?
