Subject[PATCH RFC v2] sched/headers: Fix sched_setattr userspace compilation issues
On a modern Linux distro, compiling the following program fails:

void main() {
struct sched_attr sa;


/usr/include/linux/sched/types.h:8:8: \
error: redefinition of ‘struct sched_param’
8 | struct sched_param {
| ^~~~~~~~~~~
In file included from /usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu/bits/sched.h:74,
from /usr/include/sched.h:43,
from /usr/include/pthread.h:23,
from /tmp/s.c:4:
note: originally defined here
23 | struct sched_param
| ^~~~~~~~~~~

This is also causing a problem with using sched_attr in Chrome. The issue is
struct sched_param is already provided by glibc and is in POSIX.

Guard the kernel's UAPI definition of sched_param with __KERNEL__ so
that userspace and the kernel can both compile.

With the chance that libc needs resolving something, I'm resending with
libc-alpha added as suggested by Christian, and minor commit message fixes.
