Great.. The discussion behind that was long enough that I didn't even
want to go through it all.. It looks like there are changes both in the
kernel and glibc to make this work. I think I'll just apply this patch
instead and forget that linux/if_bridge.h even exists..

There are not really that many linux/*.h files included and it might
make sense to get rid of more or less all those includes at least
outside src/drivers/* if this type of sudden breakage can be expected to
continue in the future.
