That means the possible policy of

#include <stdio.h>
#include <linux/version.h>

void exit(int code);

int main(void) {
        fprintf(stderr, "Your kernel is too old!\n");

    printf("Kernel version OK.\n");


is impossible now after all, which is good, I think, because who said that
the headers have to come from the _real_ _configured_ kernel? (It was way
too crappy.)
