Compiling DJI Onboard-SDK: error: ‘fd_set’ does not name a type

While compiling the DJI Onboard SDK on a Fedora GNU/Linux we got the following error:

To resolve this, we added to the file Onboard-SDK/osdk-core/platform/linux/inc/linux_serial_device.hpp the following include directive right after line 37 (which contained #define LINUXSERIALDEVICE_H):

#include <sys/select.h>

Then, we issued make again which terminated successfully.
