That is indeed annoying, but using the glibc defined structs seems to be
the right thing to do. Do you know which glibc version introduced them?
BTW. For this trivial patch it doesn't really matter, but in general we
like to have a Signed-off-by line for all patches to indicate
contributors know about and agree with our CONTRIBUTING guidelines.
Would you mind adding one?
