Thanks for reporting this.

This was a known issue. Please see [1] for a fix which has recently been
applied by Florian. This patch also takes into account that recent Linux
kernel headers and / or default GCC flags generate warnings when using
kernel headers directly and, thus, tries to lookup ip_vs.h without using
the kernel sources first.
