I've cherry-picked all the necessary changes (I think):

The build-time ABI check is based on 'symbol versions', which are
already used for a run-time ABI check.  The 'genksyms' program generates
symbol versions as a hash of the function signature (or object type) and
all the structure definitions that the function/object may depend on.
Thus, including a new header changes the symbol version.  I've wrapped
the inclusion with #ifndef __GENKSYMS__ so that this doesn't happen.
