For convenience, I pushed this series at

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/masahiroy/linux-kbuild.git
uapi-header-test-v1

(13/15 was replaced with v2)


If you want to test it quickly, please check-out it, then

  $ make -j8 allmodconfig usr/

(As I noted in the commit log, you need to use
a compiler that provides <stdlib.h>, <sys/time.h>, etc.)
