Fixes a non-critical bug perhaps, but I doubt it would be fixing
a functional bug as otherwise folks would have reported a build bug, no?

What or how it ends up including that file today to avoid build
failures is beyond me.

Well in my case it is making sure the sysctl variable used is declared
as well.

If its not really fixing any build bugs or functional bugs I don't see
the need. But if you really want it, I can do it.

Let me know!
