Why why WHY?

the *PROPER* fix is to make the kernel headers WORK in userspace. it is easily possible to make the headers work in userspace without modification.

the kernel team are just being lazy and the glibc team are so desperate for working headers that they are actually taking on the job of writing their own.

the whole situation is so indescribably wrong.
