What is problematic about the struct members here? I had thought that
only the struct names have to be in a namespace to be usable here,
but not the members.

The only part that might be problematic is

#undef __FD_SETSIZE
#define __FD_SETSIZE 1024

but we already get that from a number of other inclusions of
linux/posix_types.h. Is this what you mean?

We could use asm/posix_types.h instead of linux/posix_types.h,
would that address your concern?
