Ah. Yeah, procps is an awful mess. Somebody ought to rewrite it. You
can probably fix the warnings by including <linux/sched.h> first, but
that's just as bad...

Top is broken as well by the meminfo change by the way. Somebody posted a
patch for that recently, and it ought not to be too hard to do the same
for free.
