I've done a cleanup of ipcs(1) so that it doesn't require defining
_KERNEL before including a bunch of system files.  To achieve this,
I've exposed the following names to userland:


		struct msginfo { }

		struct seminfo { }

		struct shminfo { }

SEM_CONFIG_FREEZE and SEM_CONFIG_THAW are arguments to the semconfig()
system call so I haven't prefixed them with underscores.  Are these
changes acceptable from a namespace polution POV?
