Ahh sorry another quick shot, no it is still "struct user_desc".
I was wrong since my asm include files come from a strange system
configuration doing a complete asm copy. Somehow this is needed with
this kernel. I'm not quite sure what really happened to the include
files of if they are sane again ....
Anyway, the code seems ok.... sorry. This might be a wise thing for a
configure check, if user_desc is defined in asm/ldt.h ...
