Why should they be the same ? glibc gives you a single portable interface
its none of your business what the kernel and glibc talk

You shouldnt be mixing kernel and glibc includes, ever. The problem there
has been that glibc doesnt include headers for everything it should have done
and if you find one of those extract it out and write a glibc header for it
