I don't think this is the right way to do it. It prevents getting
access to the kernel uapi structure (which may be wanted) if you're
not using glibc or if you include kernel headers before any libc
headers. Rather, <linux/kernel.h>, whose only real purpose is
providing this structure to legacy applications that don't know the
renamed name for it, should not be implicitly included by other
headers. There's an existing thread on the topic but I don't have the
link handy. IIRC I proposed moving the alignment macros or whatever
other useful stuff is in <linux/kernel.h> to a separate header and
getting rid of all the indirect inclusions of <linux/kernel.h>.
