It is caused by checkin of changeset 5648: Remove non-ISO attributes
from public headers.(
98078f7e53de7cf72227fddf01f0b2b6 ).  Actually, on x86_64 xenlinux, only
the change to xen/include/public/io/netif.h caused this issue, other
part of this changeset are OK.  After reverting the changes to this
file, this issue is gone, but we need a clean patch to this issue.
Here we also found that, on i386 xenlinux, mmap001 of LTP will crash
domU, I'm doubting it is also introduced by this changeset.
