SubjectRe: Redefinition of struct in6_addr in <netinet/in.h> and <linux/in6.h>

Hi, Mike,

Please take a look at my first email in this thread. The user
application includes <linux/if_bridge.h> and <netinet/in.h>.

<linux/if_bridge.h> uses struct_in6 but doesn't include <linux/in6.h>
(this is my bad, sorry), an obvious fix is just including <linux/in6.h>.
But this immediately breaks applications which include
<linux/if_bridge.h> and <netinet/in.h>, just as what Thomas reported.

And if_bridge.h is kernel-specific, there is no corresponding glibc one,
so you can't blame applications which include both of them.
