Red Hat 7, right?  My RedHat 7 system isn't running RH 7 right now (it's
this notebook that I'm running Win95 on right now), but see which RPM's
own the two headers.  You may be in for a shock.  IIRC, the first system
include is from the 2.4 kernel, and the second in the kernel source tree
is from the 2.2 kernel.

Odd, but not really broken.  Should be fixed in the latest public beta
of RedHat, that actually has the 2.4 kernel.  I can't really say any
more about that, however.
