Ick, no.  I'm not going to take the wakelock and other header files that
are "generic" to android into the dream subdir.  That's not ok.

If this code requires this mess to build, I think we should just delete
the whole thing and start over with patches that add code that can
actually build properly.

Any objection to that?
