What do you mean by that? In C99, true and false are *not* defined in
a translation unit unless stdbool.h is included, see 7.16.

*In* the header file, that is. C99 *requires* the implementation to
define true and false *only* in the header file, and *only* as
macros. Anything else would not be conforming to C99.

No system header should ever include stdbool.h; doing so would be
in violation of the standards.

Not at all; I think the patch should be rejected.
