I'm no pcmcia guru, but try /usr/src/linux/include/pcmcia. Or

No point in copying it, it will be used in the compilation. The # means
that that line is dealt with by the C preprocessor. Effectively before
compiling that file, it will include the contents of kern_compat.h in it,
to benefit from it's declarations.
This is basically to avoid having everything in one file, and to enable
files to share declarations. Ironically the line above it _is_
commented out (that's the //).
