Package: linux-kernel-headers
Version: 2.5.999-test7-bk-5
Severity: normal


It looks to me, that latest package makes some problem when
compiling application which are doing something with Video4Linux.

As the API is still mostly the same I'm suspecting there
some serious problems with uncompilability of the headers itself.

Just try to compile packages like mplayer/aviplay/ffmpeg.

Also from my point of view (developer of avifile) these new headers
contain prohibited C++ keywords inside of them - thus makes them
hardly compilable with C++ compiler (yes even a C++ program
might want to use v4l interface)

Someone really should consider to clean all these headers.

Also what's the point to put there zillion of 'warnings' about
not using kernel headers in user-space apps. when simply there
is no other way know to me to communicate with v4l interface.
