While your accusation is generally valid, in this case Joel hit the
(assuming others can build this code on amd64-linux unmodified)
Since I wrote that code before I got an amd64-linux machine (long time
ago), and didn't test it on one before I checked it in, it's my own
stupid fault. I assumed that <linux/prctl.h> would include
<asm/prctl.h>, whch does not seem to be the case.
Joel, could you test the #ifndef version and check it in?
