as linux/ suggests, this is a linux header, and not related to the libc 
in use.
i.e. everything in linux/ is provided by the linux kernel.

sabotage linux has a package linux-kernel-headers which has a download 
url for a header tarball that includes linux/version.h:

alternatively since the uapi split you may now be able to download the 
kernel headers straight from

well-behaving programs do not include kernel headers, so you might want 
to file a bug at the redis bugtracker.
the inclusion from config.h suggests that there was a configure check 
for this header which for some reason (you may want to inspect 
config.log) succeeded despite the lack of this header on your system.

btw: french error messages are not very helpful
