$ find /usr/include -type f | egrep -v '/(linux|asm|asm-generic)/' | xargs grep
'#include <linux/' | wc -l

Although in this case, devuan ascii's /usr/include/linux/if_tunnel.h #includes
linux/ip.h. Let's see, in current kernel sources...

$ git annotate include/uapi/linux/if_tunnel.h  | grep ip.h

    include/uapi/linux/if_tunnel.h: include linux/if.h, linux/ip.h and linux/in6.h

    Fixes userspace compilation errors like:

    error: field ‘iph’ has incomplete type
    error: field ‘prefix’ has incomplete type

So this is a bug that was fixed in upstream kernel sources 4 years ago
(v4.8-rc3), and the 5.4 kernel was released November 24, 2019.

Are you sure you're using 5.4 kernel headers?
