Hello Howard.

I can't offer you a full solution, but in the spirit of trying to give 
something back here's my input:

I don't have an asm-generic directory in /usr/include, so I imagine that 
you've done something wrong somewhere. Double check that you've applied 
the patches properly!

Lastly, I would never, ever copy header files or anything else to do 
with the toolchain from the host. This can lead to loads of problems, 
and as I'm still a newbie I know that I'll not be able to solve the 
resulting mess on my own!

Hope this helps a bit.
