Subject[PATCH] um: Fix header inclusion
User Mode is a flavor of x86 that from the vDSO prospective always falls
back on system calls. This implies that it does not require any of the
unified vDSO definitions and their inclusion causes side effects like
the one reported below:

In file included from include/vdso/processor.h:10:0,
from include/vdso/datapage.h:17,
from arch/x86/include/asm/vgtod.h:7,
from arch/x86/um/../kernel/sys_ia32.c:49:
>> arch/x86/include/asm/vdso/processor.h:11:29: error: redefinition of 'rep_nop'
static __always_inline void rep_nop(void)
In file included from include/linux/rcupdate.h:30:0,
from include/linux/rculist.h:11,
from include/linux/pid.h:5,
from include/linux/sched.h:14,
from arch/x86/um/../kernel/sys_ia32.c:25:
arch/x86/um/asm/processor.h:24:20: note: previous definition of 'rep_nop' was here
static inline void rep_nop(void)

Make sure that the unnecessary headers are not included when um is built
to address the problem.
