yes this was reported earlier but it was not addressed

there is no clean solution: netinet/if_ether.h should include
linux/if_ether.h so they don't conflict, but then it cannot be
used without the kernel headers

netinet/if_ether.h has additional interfaces over the linux/if_ether.h
ones, so this does not work in general
