Often this is because, the source is #includeing both <linux/foo.h> and 
system/foo.h> or <foo.h>. When you're lucky, you can just remove
the <linux/foo.h>. Otherwise, I usually search around a bit with
   grep symbol `find . -type f`
in the /usr/include directory, an "symbol" being the multiple defined
