Yes, definitely goes against recommended practice. The headers should
match the ones with which the C library was built. Otherwise, the C
library itself does not know the size of structures you are passing to
it, etc. The kernel is supposed to provide a backward-compatible interface,
but it's difficult for it to do this when your C library is built with a
different set of headers from the application.
Can you get your operating system fixed when you need it?
