aparently the inotify-using apps we currently ship (gnome-vfs, gamin etc) are
carrying their own private copies of the headers to work around this, but users
hit problems when they try to use inotify in their own apps.
The inotify syscalls were added to glibc-kernheaders in glibc-kernheaders-3_0-4
on 2006-01-23 -- for Alpha, i386, ppc, ppc64, s390, s390x and x86_64. Now that
glibc has been rebuilt, the support ought to be present.
Should be fixed in glibc-2.3.90-32 and above.
