This seems to break some userspace too:

INSTALL usr/include/linux/ (413 files)
CHECK usr/include/linux/ (413 files)
HOSTCC Documentation/accounting/getdelays
HOSTCC Documentation/connector/ucon
HOSTCC Documentation/mic/mpssd/mpssd.o
In file included from Documentation/mic/mpssd/mpssd.c:36:0:

./usr/include/linux/virtio_ring.h:146:24: error: ‘uintptr_t’ undeclared
(first use in this function)
vr->used = (void *)(((uintptr_t)&vr->avail->ring[num] +
sizeof(__virtio16)
^
./usr/include/linux/virtio_ring.h:146:24: note: each undeclared
identifier is reported only once for each function it appears in

E.g. fuse.h has this code:
#ifdef __KERNEL__
#include <linux/types.h>
#else
#include <stdint.h>
#endif

Maybe we need something similar.
