Note that the layout of the structure at compile-time has nothing to
do with the features that the kernel supports at run-time. And the
usual way to fix this kind of problem is to simply redefine the
necessary structure ourselves; this way it works with all kernels even
if you don't have the proper headers on the build machine.
