   Any software that defines _KERNEL (because it needs internal
interface stuff) needs to include files from /sys (or /usr/src/sys, or
the like), rather than /usr/include.  The stuff in /usr/include is
for user-land software, not kernel software.

   The issue of whether a userland program/library should be
using the _KERNEL symbol I won't get into here...  :-)
