Thank you. The bug is in libcap header file

It does evil stuff like this:

  25 /*
  26  * Make sure we can be included from userland by preventing
  27  * capability.h from including other kernel headers
  28  */
  29 #define _LINUX_TYPES_H
  30 #define _LINUX_FS_H
  31 #define __LINUX_COMPILER_H
  32 #define __user
  34 typedef unsigned int __u32;
  35 typedef __u32 __le32;

This completely prevents including /usr/include/linux/types.h, etc.

It seems my distro has a patch that removes all the above lines to
resolve this issue. I'll try contacting libcap upstream on this issue.
