Yeah, sorry, my sentence was badly worded, I should have written "streams is not available on Linux upstream" instead (even though there've been 3rd party modules in the past).

"stropts.h" is part of the glibc but, precisely because streams is missing, downstream Fedora is patching the glibc to remove the header to avoid issues with apps trying to use it, which explains why the code as it was wouldn't build on Fedora.

The rationale is coming from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=436349
