[libvirt] Redefinition of struct in6_addr in <netinet/in.h> and <linux/in6.h>



(Cc'ing some glibc developers...)

Hello,

In glibc source file inet/netinet/in.h and kernel source file
include/uapi/linux/in6.h, both define struct in6_addr, and both are
visible to user applications. Thomas reported a conflict below.

So, how can we handle this? /me is wondering why we didn't see this
before.

Thanks.
