with kernel headers from the latest kernel QEMU fails to build if the user run
configure with --target-list=s390x-linux-user:

when the kernel has commit 0768e17073dc527ccd18ed5f96ce85f9985e9115
net: socket: implement 64-bit timestamps

/root/rpmbuild/BUILD/qemu-4.0.50/linux-user/ioctls.h:222:9: error: 'SIOCGSTAMP' undeclared here (not in a function); did you mean 'SIOCSRARP'?

It seems that qemu build relies on SIOCGSTAMP to be present via sys/socket.h.

Adding this patch to qemu helps.

diff --git a/linux-user/syscall.c b/linux-user/syscall.c

But it is also a change in behavior of the kernel headers. (but only for programs that
use sys/socket.h instead of linux/sockios.h.
