I have not been able to reproduce this; it seems to Just Work[TM].

The syscall header stuff is definitely not to blame: it doesn't even *see* the CONFIG_ settings; instead they are only used to determine which subset of files to create, but the files themselves are configuration-independent. This is by design.

As such, without an actual known to fail test case there isn't much I can do.
