Well, exactly because of this problem, I preprocess all the include
files at once - so that the preprocessor itself can remove all the
duplicates. Maybe you could try something like this:

ffi.include { "stdio.h", "time.h", "unistd.h", ... } -- you get the idea

Or, another way to do this is just to collect all the arguments into a
table, and then use a function like processAllHeaders() that will do the
same thing as I did manually.

The last option (IMO not good) would be to patch LuaJIT to ignore
redefinitions altogether...
