Yes, it is not right, but there is no other way to test for the
feature short of autoconf like methods. I am just trying to provide
a good temporal correlation of when the feature appeared. Running
a 1.6F kernel on a 1.5ZC userland will still work as long as you
don't make your <sys/..> match your 1.6F kernel. If you update your
sys code, then you might as well update the rest of the include
headers, otherwise other unexpected lossage can happen.
