This looks suspicious: obviously anyone who is including this
header today has to define those types somewhere. If you add
another definition, that will clash with the existing one.

Have you tried replacing the custom types with the regular
kernel types instead?

I would not worry about breaking other operating systems here,
in fact it may be better to remove the #ifdef for those altogether.

This looks like an actual bugfix: pid_t might differ between libc and
the kernel, so the kernel interface has to use types that the kernel
defines. This is probably ok on any supported version of glibc,
so it's unlikely to have caused runtime problems, but it should be
fixed nonetheless.
