hmm, seem to work fine for me ...

the following suggestions:

 - use -I/usr/src/linux/include where CAPs and syscalls are compiled
 - get rid of the excessive automake copyrights of yours
   (I counted 9 in Makefile for example ...)
 - fix the format issues I reported in my last reply ...

good work!

best,
Herbert
