I don't even have kernel-source-2.4.0 installed.
It's a file that dpkg -S told me was in libc6.1-dev. Oh well.
BTW, it would have been nice if you could have CCed me directly,
I don't always check debian-alpha that regularly.

Er, alpha folks, (that includes me, BTW, although I'm not a technical
alpha folk), don't bother; this is a GENERIC bug in
/usr/include/linux/kernel.h, not specific to alpha at all.

Exactly the same problem exists in the i386 libc6-dev 2.2.1-1 package;
I'll repeat it here as you snipped the info:

the padding in struct struct sysinfo has been (erroneously?) decreased
from 22 to 20 (and then 2 longs and 1 int are substracted again).  This
could lead to serious breakage.
