RE: disallow direct inclussion of <linux/*.h>

Hello from Gregg C Levine
Here's my opinion, not that I was asked. On my Linux systems, both of
them running the same distribution, GLIBC contains the current
libraries, and C headers for building things. And the Linux system
headers, come from the kernel. Typically there is a symlink which
points to them, somewhere inside the regular include directory. Marco,
your nearly there. And yes this should be discussed, but not on the
list, we'll alienate everyone else there. Or annoy them, before
Incidentally I did try to install the latest blob from Debian, via a
CD from LWE this year, it didn't like my NIC. Twice in fact.
