Hm ... it is certainly the smallest solution to the problem, since "struct
lfs" is not shared between kernel and userland (only "struct dlfs" is);
but struct lfs and macros that depend on it are used by both.

Now, you could argue that userland doesn't need to use struct lfs, and
you'd probably be right, but if I had had the sense to "./
release" one last time, and noticed this error, I probably would have
adopted exactly this fix for it.

(What tripped this, I think, is that libsa includes code for booting LFS
that uses struct lfs.  While it does not detract from your point in any
way, I do find it somewhat ironic that you wrote said LFS boot code :^)
