While playing around with including <sys/sysctl.h> for the first time in
some files, I've noticed two painful things:
+ <sys/syscallargs.h> needs <sys/mount.h> included beforehand
for fhandle_t and fsid_t.
+ <sys/sysctl.h> needs at least some of <sys/time.h>, <sys/ucred.h>
<sys/proc.h> and <vm/vm.h> to get all the right things declared
for the kinfo_proc structure that includes a 'struct proc'. It
even goes as far to include those if not _KERNEL.
Both sets of prerequisites are quite non-intuitive. For syscallargs.h,
makesyscalls.sh explicitly doesn't pass the #include's from
syscalls.master - these are
and well as some "opt_*" files. Is there any bad reasons for just
passing the "#include <" files to syscallargs.h (except for the one that
matches the basename of $sysarghdr) and including the above files in
