Looking for a compile failure for a package on uclibc system using
kernel-headers from 2.6.25 I found that linux/a.out.h is no more
exported to userland anymore.

This commit below has disabled it from being exported. The commit Do not
export asm/page.h during make headers_install so I was wondering if it
was intended to unexport linux/a.out.h or not.;a=commitdiff;h=ed7b1889da256977574663689b598d88950bbd23

Looking at the patch from lkml post

second hunk to include/linux/Kbuild was not applied which caused this

I think I do not fall into Signed-off-by definition. I tested the
following patch on 2.6.25.
