Header file 'ordering' issue?



Vmware has some difficulties with the latest few kernel packages that
appear to be related to some changes in the kernel build headers.

Described here:
http://www.vmware.com/community/message.jspa?messageID=375839#375839

Here's the gist:

asm-i386/bitops.h includes asm-i386/alternatives.h, and
asm-i386/alternatives.h uses type 'u8' although it does not include
asm-i386/types.h. Right fix is either replace all 'u8' with 'unsigned
char' in asm/alternatives.h, or include asm/types.h in alternatives.h.

Appears that bitops.h/alternatives.h now assumes types.h was
previously included.

Is this a known feature/change?
