Bug#523424: [linux-libc-dev] header clash between <linux/types.h> and <stdint.h>

Package: linux-libc-dev
Version: 2.6.29-2
Severity: important

--- Please enter the report below this line. ---
With kernel 2.6.29 there has been a change from asm/types.h to linux/types.h for a lot of the kernel includes:

-#include <asm/types.h>
+#include <linux/types.h>

This leads to FTBS errors like the one from VDR - see snippet A below. A short test for this is to compile, this:

    #include <linux/types.h>
    #include <stdint.h>

    int main() { return 0; }

There's a clash between linux/types.h and stdint.h because types.h defines some POSIX types defined in stdint.h as well.

Arnd Bergmann already prepared a patch for this, which unfortunately didn't made it into 2.6.29.



I've just applied the whole patchset from the core/header-fixes branch and it works fine.

As far as I can see, these changes already made it into Linus' kernel tree.
