Miklos, I see Arve sent an equivalent patch to you a month ago
(, and I agree with his response
to your question (checking for __linux__ and __KERNEL__ is better than
just checking for __KERNEL__ if you want this header to be used in
userspace builds on linux targets). Can you pull one of these two
patches before 3.9?
