Because couple of structures in X source code are using struct members named as "bool" (added in 2012):
./hw/xfree86/common/xf86Opt.h:    Bool bool;
./hw/xwin/winconfig.h:    Bool bool;

(FYI: Bool is defined as "int" in several X headers.)

Please revert the part adding "stdbool.h" include / "bool" typedef to the xf86drm.h header used by X server, until somebody renames those badly named struct members in X server sources.

    xf86drm: fix return type for drmIsMaster()
    Xserver has struct members named `bool`, which means the last commit
    breaks its build with errors like this:
      error: two or more data types in declaration specifiers
      Bool bool;
    Fix this by making it return a 0/1 integer, with the same semantic as
    the boolean it was before.

I hope somebody fixes also those X server xf86Opt.h & winconfig.h headers soon as even some of X server code itself is using stdbool.h:
$ git grep stdbool.h
