here /usr/include/linux/videodev2.h already includes linux/types.h

what version of linux-headers are you using ?

you should try to compile a sample C file just including
linux/videodev2.h and see what happens. I don't think v4l2.c from vlc
uses anything from linux/types.h so it's most likely to be a
linux-headers bug that should get tracked and reported on
