problem doing #include <linux/fs.h> in 2.3.99-pre6

When i try to compile source that does #include <linux/fs.h>
(such as in e2fsprogs-1.18) i get the following error:

In file included from /usr/include/linux/dcache.h:5,
                 from /usr/include/linux/fs.h:19,
                 from ../../../lib/ext2fs/getsize.c:21:
/usr/include/linux/mount.h:16: parse error before `kdev_t'
/usr/include/linux/mount.h:16: warning: no semicolon at end of struct or union
/usr/include/linux/mount.h:21: parse error before `}'
/usr/include/linux/mount.h:20: storage size of `mnt_list' isn't known
make[1]: *** [getsize.o] Error 1

i can just make a dummy source file that does nothing but
include linux/fs.h and get the same error.

looks like mount.h gets included too early. dcache.h
didn't used to include mount.h and i can compile e2fsprogs
if i use the 2.3.49 kernel sources.
