Kernel headers are completely irrelevant; they're not used anywhere.
nsz's analysis is right. I have a patch I'm about to commit. In case
you'd like to try it directly without using git, I'm attaching it

There may be more fixes still needed. MIPS has A LOT of gratuitous
differences in constant definitions and I thought I'd caught all of
them before, but apparently some slipped through. The fcntl part of
the patch has been tested and seems correct. The socket parts should
be right, but they're untested; I'm working on a test for them now.
