One thing to note: there seems to be some fishy stuff in the bits
headers we should check out, like whether blksize_t really needs to be
"int" (it's long on other systems), explicit use of "unsigned int"
instead of nlink_t without defining nlink_t to match, possibly-wrong
sysvipc structures (it looks like the legacy ones are being used
instead of the "64" ones, but I may be wrong), namespace issues in
bits/signal.h, ...
