The files on the rtems-4_10-branch in crossrpms git
and (The official place I publish patches and sources)
are current and do build flawlessly on CentOS6-{x86_64,i386}.

This header file is a linux kernel header and is not related to RTEMS by 
any means.

If you see an error related to this file, this indicates your 
installation is incomplete (some prerequisite packages are missing), 
broken (You've installed something which is conflicting) or you've hit a 
packaging bug in CentOS.

As the rpms are building flawlessly, I can exclude the latter.

As you, for reasons which are incomprehensible to me, don't seem to be 
rebuilding nor wanting to use the rpms (which would automatically care 
about package deps), I'd guess on the former.
